You are looking at two leaders being closely watched by US policy makers. Former Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide being welcomed by the leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro
Jean Bertrand Aristide, former President of Haiti, has always been amenable to working with the Cuban Government. During his Presidency, educational services and health programs launched by Aristide and the Lavalas party had been undertaken with assistance from their Caribbean neighbor. Haiti and Cuba began a humanitarian relationship in 1998 through which Haitian doctors received training in Cuba, and doctors from Cuba moved to work in the rural parts of Haiti. Throughout the years up until the January 2010 earthquake, nearly 600 Haitian doctors had been trained in Cuba.
The relationship between Cuba and Haiti has never been better than for the past several years. The first official visit of Michel Martelly to Cuba will solidify that relationship. Cuba has been the leader in Haiti providing healthcare and other services to the people.
The Government of Haiti can not even begin to thank Raul and Fidel Castro for their generosity in providing medical teamsto help Haiti fight the Cholera epidemic and other medical issues.
Before anything else, The Martelly's government needs to demonstrate to the Cuban people that Haitians are greatful for that.
Here is a picture of Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, popularly known as Nelson Mandela served as South African President from 1994 to 1999. He was the first ever South African black to have held that position through the first ever multiracial and fully representative election to be held in the nation. The focus of Mandela government stay concentrated on dismantling of apartheid legacy and the path chosen was that of tackling inequality and poverty, racial reconciliation encouragement and dealing with institutionalized racism. He was politically a democratic socialist and African Nationalist who served as the President of ANC or African National Congress from 1991 to 1997. Mandela also held the position of General Secretary of Non-Aligned Movement for one year from 1998 to 1999.
