dated September 29, 1960: Nehru meets Castro

“I wanted to meet you for many reasons, above all, because you are a very brave man.” This is how Prime Minister Nehru greeted the young bearded Prime Minister, Dr. Fidel Castro, of Cuba when he met in Castro's plainly-furnished suite in Hotel Theresa in New York on September 27. Looking on this historic meeting were Cuba's Foreign Minister, Mr. Raul Roa, Cuban army leader Major Juan Almaeda, and a dozen other aides of Dr. Castro. The small party, which accompanied Mr. Nehru included Defence Minister Menon and Foreign Secretary Dutt. “I have been wanting to see you. If you had not come I would have come to you. You are a man of peace”, Dr. Castro told Mr. Nehru, speaking in hesitant English occasionally breaking into Spanish when he could not find the right English expression.
