On Saturday, May 21, the leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro Ruz, held a friendly meeting with compañero Evo Morales Ayma, president of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, at the end of his visit to Cuba.
Fidel and Evo recalled important moments in the ongoing process of regional integration, and highlighted the contribution of Hugo Chávez and Cristina Fernández de Kichner to the initiative. They also addressed the fraternal and growing collaboration ties between the two countries; discussed events currently occurring in Latin America and attempts by imperialist forces to destroy the socio-political movement in the hemisphere, whilst also warning of the grave threat such actions pose to humanity.
The warm and touching encounter served as another example of the shared vision of both leaders, and the genuine ties of friendship and cooperation which unite Cuba and Bolivia.

The head of the commission supervising the process leading up to a potential referendum to recall Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, initiated by the right-wing opposition, said on Monday that nearly 190,000 of the signatures submitted belong to the deceased.
“They said they delivered 1.85 million of signatures. However, almost 190,000 of them were deceased people," said Jorge Rodriguez, who was appointed by Maduro and also heads the United Socialist Party of Venezuela.
Rodriguez alleged the Venezuelan opposition submitted fake signatures in pursuit of “a coup d’état against President Nicolas Maduro.”
Constitutional jurist Maria Alejandra Diaz said in an interview with teleSUR that it will now be “very difficult” if not “impossible” for the opposition to hold a recall referendum this year.
The process leading up to a referendum will take at least 170 days, in her estimation, which means the third week of January 2017 is the earliest one could be held.
Any registered voter, including the head of state, can file a complaint over irregularities uncovered during this process, she added, meaning a referendum could be pushed back even further.
