    Cuba's former president Fidel Castro met with Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa in Havana on Wednesday.

    Rebelo de Sousa and Castro talked about the United Nation's General Assembly resolution that was overwhelming approved Wednesday by a vote of 191-0, with the United States abstaining for the first time in 25 years on the resolution condemning America's economic embargo against Cuba.

    Fidel Castro said during the meeting with the Portuguese president that Cuba is not willing to forget the human and economic damage caused by the blockade, and thanked de Sousa for his country's vote.

    They also talked about international issues and their friendly relations between both countries.

    De Sousa also met with Cuba's current leader, Raul Castro, Fidel's younger brother.
