Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro told a Thursday gathering of Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic-bombing survivors to convey to the world their experiences and feelings regarding the Fukushima nuclear crisis.

The 85-year-old attended the gathering for more than three hours and made the call in a speech to about 800 Japanese in the audience. It was one of the few public appearances Castro has made since he retired from all public positions last April.
