Cuban leader Fidel Castro has given his first television interview in more than three months and it is aired now at the "Mesa Redonda" space of state television. In an interview with the newspaperman Randy Alonso, Castro spoke around an hour .

In the interview he analyzed economical, political and social aspects that are affecting the world. Specially the climatic change, energetical resources, etc.

A television presenter said Castro gave the one-hour interview earlier on Friday and that it would be broadcast at 6 p.m. local time (6 p.m. EDT).

Castro relinquished power to his brother Raul on July 31, 2006 after he underwent emergency intestinal surgery, and he has not appeared in public since then.

Video footage of meetings with foreign leaders appeared to show a steady improvement in Castro's health early this year but no footage or pictures have been released since a TV interview in early June, fueling speculation that his condition may have worsened.
