Castro, Inc.’s rotund prime minister Manuel Marrero has gone to Istanbul to represent Cuba at President Erdogan’s inauguration. That’s the official line. The hidden truth is that he is there begging for help, offering deals similar to those that have been extended to Russia.
In other words, as Cuba’s monumental problems spiral out of control, Castro, Inc. has sent Manuel “El Barrigón” Marrero to let Erdogan and his minions know that Cuba is for sale.
Turkey has been leasing floating power plants to Castro, Inc. at an undisclosed price. Given Castro, Inc.’s chronic inability to pay whatever it owes to everyone, chances are that the well-fed Marrero has been tasked with striking some deals to cancel the rent it owes Turkey.
God only knows what he will give away to Turkey in exchange for its help.

The Prime Minister of Cuba, Manuel Marrero Cruz, arrived in Istanbul at dawn this Saturday, at the head of a Cuban delegation that will attend the inauguration of the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, published the official website Cubadebate. The ceremony will take place this Saturday afternoon.
According to the official newspaper Granma, this is the first time that a Cuban head of government attends the inauguration of a Turkish president, which the organ of the Communist Party of Cuba tied to “the positive relations between the two countries , as well as the good level of governmental exchange and between institutions”.
During his stay in Turkey, Marrero Cruz will hold meetings with local authorities and with representatives of the business sector, and “will follow up on various projects in progress and the agreements signed” following the visit of Miguel Díaz-Canel to that country, in November of 2022, in search of help for the chaotic situation of the Cuban economy.
On that trip, both leaders talked about “developing existing cooperation in fields such as energy, tourism, construction, agriculture, health and the environment.”
