AFP/Lima. Peru’s president-elect Ollanta Humala arrives in Cuba early today at the invitation of President Raul Castro, official state media reported.
Humala’s arrival comes at the same time Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez is in the Cuban capital for chemotherapy treatment for cancer. Humala was once seen as an ally of Chavez-style politics but has recently played down his ties to the Venezuelan. The Cuban official daily Granma said Humala would arrive early today at the invitation of Raul Castro, with “official talks” and other activities planned, including a possible meeting with former president Fidel Castro.Humala, who takes office July 28, will arrive in Havana from Mexico.
