Fidel Castro to deliver first public speech since 2006
Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro will deliver his first public speech since 2006 on Friday, during a meeting with students of the Havana University, RIA Novosti reported.
The speech, to begin at 15:30 Moscow time [11:30 GMT] would focus on "another war in the Middle East with unforeseeable consequences for the world," Cuba's Granma newspaper said.
It would be broadcast live by the country's leading radio and TV channels.
The Cuban leader, who has rarely been seen in public since ceding power to his younger brother in 2008, has made a series of public appearances this summer.
