Socialist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who supplies Cuba with cheap oil and calls Fidel Castro his mentor, said on Tuesday Raul Castro would visit the OPEC nation in the next few days, symbolizing the nation's close ties.
"I am pleased to say that Raul Castro, who has not left Cuba as president of Cuba, has told us in the last few days that he has been invited to visit Brazil, China, Russia and other countries but that he is not going to visit any other country before coming to Caracas," Chavez said at a speech to supporters.
It was not clear when Raul Castro would visit.
Chavez has tentatively organized for Nov. 26 a summit of Latin American leftist presidents in an alliance he leads to promote trade and economic cooperation between like-minded nations, including Cuba.
