Rowley writes letter to Cuban president *


Trinidad Express / PRIME Minister Dr Keith Rowley has sent a letter to Cuban President Raul Castro expressing condolences on behalf of the Government and the people of Trinidad and Tobago on the death of his brother and former president Fidel Castro.

Castro died in Havana on Friday night at the age of 90.

There will be nine days of mourning in Cuba to mark his passing.

In a statement yesterday, Rowley said Castro was one of the world’s longest serving leaders and the people of T&T and many Caricom nations had long enjoyed cordial diplomatic relations with Cuba.

“The passing of Fidel Castro marks an end of an iconic period of history not only for the Caribbean and Latin American Region, but also for the world. Again, on behalf of the government and people of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, I extend our deepest sympathy to the government and people of Cuba,” he said.

The Sunday Express was unable to confirm yesterday if Rowley will attend Castro’s funeral.
