Castro denies complicity
in J.F.K. assassination
MIAMI (MPl - Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro categorically
denies his government had anything to do with the assassination
of President John Kennedy.
But Castro has implied that he will reply in kind to further
terrorist attacks on Cuban property or diplomats overseas.
IN A SPEECH reported over Havana radio yesterday, Castro
also said Cuban combat troops are being "gradually withdrawn"
from Angola but that civilian personnel are being sent to the newly
independent African nation.
Speaking in the context of terrorism and what he said were
attempts to kill him and other Cuban leaders in the early days of
the Cuban revolution, Castro said about the Kennedy murder:
"Some imply that such an action could have been retaliation
by the Cuban revolution for the actions carried out against the
lives of our leaders at that time. In truth, we reiterate that never
has the Cuban revolution utilized terrorism.
"I CAN categorically affirm that the Cuban revolution never
had the most minor participation in the death of the president
of the United States, John Kennedy."
The CIA planned a number of assassination plots against
Castro in the early 1960s, the Senate Intelligence Committee
has disclosed.
