Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart Wraps Up Visit to Kazakhstan

ASTANA – Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart, scientific adviser to the Cuban president and a nuclear physicist, ended on Friday a week-long visit to Kazakhstan, according to Kazakh government sources.

The son of Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro visited scientific and technical facilities and laboratories to gauge Kazakhstan’s potential in the fields of nuclear energy and biotechnology.

Diaz-Balart also met with students from leading Kazakh universities and gave a lecture on nanotechnology at the Faculty of Physics at the Eurasian University.

He offered to “share with Kazakhstan the development of nanotechnology underway in Cuba.”

Fidel Angel Castro Diaz-Balart graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University and is affiliated with the Kurchatov Institute, a prestigious Russian atomic energy research institution.

While in Kazakhstan he discussed nuclear energy problems with the nation’s top scientists.

“Cuba also has institutions committed to nuclear physics and nuclear security,” he said, and suggested organizing Cuban-Kazakh cooperation through the International Atomic Energy Agency.

During his visit to Astana, Castro Diaz-Balart was accompanied by the Ambassador of Kazakhstan to Canada, accredited concurrently in Cuba, Konstantin Zhigalov.

Although no specific date has been set, government sources said Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev is to travel to Cuba on an official visit soon.
