New Bolivian leader pays visit to Castro

HAVANA - Bolivian President-elect Evo Morales arrived in Cuba on Friday on his first overseas trip since winning a landslide victory that shifts the political tide in Latin America further leftward.

Greeted at the airport in Havana by Cuban President Fidel Castro, Morales expressed "joy" at being in Cuba and described his two-day visit here as a show of "friendship for the Cuban people."

Castro called the Dec. 18 victory by Morales, a staunch U.S. opponent and Bolivia's first indigenous president, "something extraordinary, something historic."
