Castro tells Americans he supports war on terrorism

Sunday, May 26, 2002

HAVANA -- Fidel Castro told Americans on Saturday that they should never fear an attack by Cuba and can always count on his communist country's support in the war against terrorism.

In his first public comments since President Bush's tough Cuba speech on Monday, Castro told a rally of several hundred thousand people that Cuba does not fault Americans for their government's restrictions on the communist island and recognizes that many U.S. citizens support improved relations.

"Our struggle is not and never will be against the people of the United States," Castro said during a rally.
