Today at 10h00 I had a conversation with [Cuban Foreign Minister Raúl] Roa, who promised to do everything to make a meeting with Castro happen quickly. I mentioned emphatically that this was my own initiative with the goal to enhance and improve my reporting on Castro’s relevant explanations in public speeches to Berne and to, given the current situation, get an authentic interpretation. Roa is not familiar with Kennedy’s statements that you mentioned. I am reserving more flashes.
