The Cuban Sugar Missile Crisis: Still doubting Castro’s Cuba is a State Sponsor of Terrorism?

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Senior Cuban Official Visits North Korea

The Castro regime's state media has reported that senior Cuban Communist Party official, Jose Ramon Balaguer, is in Pyongyang today, where he held high-level meetings with North Korean officials.

According to the report, "both sides agreed to the good state of bilateral relations, to strengthen links and expand cooperation."

This visit comes amid the scandal of a North Korean vessel caught smuggling a Cuban arsenal through the Panama Canal, in violation of the U.N. Security Council's arms embargo.

It is curious that Castro has chosen the 81-year old Balaguer to lead this trip.

He is a former Health Minister and Cuban Ambassador to the Soviet Union.

Most importantly, Balaguer is a close Castro confidant, which means they want to ensure the utmost secrecy in dealing with (and lying about) this crisis.
