지난해 장수술 후 동생 라울 국방장관에게 권력을 넘겨준 후 공식석상에 나타나지 않고 있는 피델 카스트로 쿠바 국가평의회 의장이 1일 노동절 행사에도 모습을 드러내지 않았습니다.
이날 아바나의 혁명광장에서 열린 행진행사에는 대통령 권한대행인 라울 카스트로가 대신 참석했습니다.
올해 80세인 피델 카스트로가 집권 48년동안 노동절 행사에 불참한 것은 이번이 세번째로 알려졌습니다.
Ailing Cuban President Fidel Castro did not appear at May Day celebrations in Havana today (Tuesday), despite speculation he might appear in public for the first time since handing over power to his brother, Raul, last July.
Acting president Raul Castro sat in the place of honor and occasionally waved during the annual May Day parade. Officials say this is the third time in 48 years of rule that 80-year-old Fidel Castro has missed the May Day celebrations.
Mr. Castro temporarily transferred power to his brother in July before undergoing intestinal surgery. He has not reclaimed his powers, although Cuban officials and his allies in other nations say he has been gaining strength lately and participating in government decisions.
