HAVANA, Cuba — Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro ended his long silence over his country's restoration of diplomatic ties with the United States, indicating that he backs the talks even though he distrusts politics in Washington.
The comments were the first by the 88-year-old revolutionary leader on the talks with the U.S. since the historic December 17 declaration that the countries would move to restore ties broken more than a half century ago.
