Castro visits Mexico as ties improve


MÉRIDA, Mexico: Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto will host Cuban counterpart Raul Castro on Friday as the two governments cement a diplomatic renewal following unusually chilly relations. Castro’s first state visit to Mexico since he took office in 2006 will take place in the eastern colonial city of Merida, where the two leaders will discuss a range of issues and sign a series of agreements. The visit comes after Cuba and the United States restored diplomatic relations, a move that has raised the prospect of investment opportunities on the communist island.
