Cuban President Raul Castro will travel to the U.S. to give a speech at the UN General Assembly on Monday, Sept. 28.
The Cuban head of state was also scheduled to participate in the Sept. 25th Assembly session, also attended by Pope Francis.
Raul Castro will hold bilateral meetings with authorities from different countries, and he will meet with people from the U.S., including Cuban Americans.
Responding to a reporter’s question whether Castro and U.S. President Barack Obama would meet at the UN, a Cuban leader said there is not any planned meeting, but they both will be attending several activities at the same time.
Castro and Obama spoke to each other recently by phone.
