U.S. Congressmen Meet With Castro, Dissidents

January 08, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

President Fidel Castro held talks with six U.S. congressmen, discussing the U.S. embargo and international events, participants said.

Most of the congressmen later met with about a dozen of the island's leading dissidents, who say they are seeking peaceful changes to Castro's one-party system.

Rep. William D. Delahunt (D-Mass.) said Castro, who also entertained two senators last week, was conciliatory. "The tone reflected a new attitude . . . one of less confrontation and effort to explore ways of collaboration to put the Cold War behind us," he said.
