Ortega briefs Castro personally on the Port-of-Spain summit.

Daniel Ortego, President of Nicaragua, spent four hours with Fidel Castro following the summit of Latin American countries held in Trinidad this month. This was addressed by Barack Obama.
An article in Granma reveals Castro’s reflections on that summit. He says that what came out as a definitive report had not even been read by Obama, with the U.S. President trying to act as if history did not exist.

I think what is interesting to note is that there appears to be a considerable working relationship between many, if not most, Latin American countries and Cuba. Cuba had been left out of the summit – according to Castro had not wished to join in. Nevertheless the President of the Argentine spoke of the anachronism of the continuing attitude to Cuba by the U.S. particularly and now Ortega was also showing those links to be very real.
