Fidel Castro Hails “Revolutionary Steadfastness” in Talks with Algerian

HAVANA – Fidel Castro invoked “revolutionary steadfastness” in a conversation with visiting Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal, Cuban official media reported on Friday.

Castro, 90, who stepped down a decade ago in favor of younger brother Raul due to health issues, received the premier on Thursday at his home.

“The revolutionary steadfastness of our peoples will grow. Nothing or no one will break them,” Castro told Sellal, according to a front page article in Communist Party daily Granma.

Castro recalled past meetings with Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, in power since 1999, who he described as an “unconditional and loyal friend of Cuba.”

Fidel also reflected on Cuba’s history of cooperation with African countries, particularly Algeria, and thanked the Algerian government for its support of Havana in the face of the 54-year-old U.S. economic embargo against the island.

Sellal became the latest in a series of foreign leaders to meet this year with the “comandante” of the Cuban Revolution, including Iranian President Hassan Rohani, Japan’s Shinzuo Abe and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

The Algerian prime minister also met Thursday with President Raul Castro and the two men oversaw the signing of several bilateral accord.

Sellal arrived Wednesday on an official visit that comes as Cuba is seeking stable oil flows due to a drop in subsidized crude shipments from Venezuela.

A few weeks ago, specialized media outlets reported that Algerian state oil company Sonatrach would ship around 515,000 barrels of crude to Cuba in October, although neither country has provided official confirmation.
