CASTRO MEETS WITH U.S. NEWSPAPER EDITORS.

President Fidel Castro met over the weekend in Havana with a 32-member delegation of U.S. newspaper editors, reports Radio Havana's news service (October 26, 1998). The President of the American Newspaper Editor's Association, Edward Seaton, said the six-hour meeting was "very interesting." During the meeting, it was pointed out that the U.S. Helms-Burton Law -- which reinforces Washington's almost 40-year blockade against the island -- prevents the opening of permanent Cuban press agencies in the U.S. The U.S. news agency Cable News Network (CNN) opened a permanent bureau in Cuba in March of last year. Other U.S. news agencies are granted temporary visas for their special correspondents on the island.
