HAVANA (AP) — Fidel Castro said last year he was ending his second career as a columnist. But the retired leader is apparently so consumed by world affairs that he's making a comeback.
In a column published by official media Wednesday, Castro denies a recent report by a Russian newspaper alleging that Cuba refused to let NSA leaker Edward Snowden pass through the island en route to Latin America.
Castro calls that a "paid-for lie." He says he admires Snowden's "bravery."
The Cuban leader first broke his hiatus in April with an essay about tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
Last month state media carried a letter by Castro about the seizure in Panama of Cuban weaponry bound for North Korea.
