Why is Vaclav Havel saying Castro will be out of power “soon”?
Former Czech President Vaclav Havel has opened an international conference in Prague on promoting democracy in Cuba.
He told delegates that Cuba’s situation would change soon and that opponents to Fidel Castro’s 45-year rule should prepare for the end of “dictatorship”.
Note he is saying “Cuba’s situation would change soon”. Not “might”, not “could”, but “would”.
A Cuban diplomat told the BBC that the US was behind the event, which she called an unwanted meddling.
