Former Cuban President Fidel Castro wants the United Nations to investigate why the United States and other nations sent thousands of troops to Haiti.
Last week, former Cuban President Fidel Castro denounced the United States for “occupying” the nation of Haiti after it was devastated by a 7.0 earthquake, according to Russia Today. Castro wants the UN to investigate as to why the US and other countries are sending thousands of troops to the Caribbean nation.
In an opinion piece in the state-controlled media, reports AFP, Castro wrote “amid the Haitian tragedy, with no one knowing how or why, thousands of (US Marines) and paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division and other military forces have occupied Haitian territory. Even worse, neither the United Nations nor the (US government) has offered an explanation ... of this movement of forces.”
