Chavez to Castro: "You will never die."
Castro and Chavez were broadcast over the radio and television in their countries, Cuba and Venezuela, Sunday, according to the New York Times.
This was the first time Castro has been on air since he's been sick. Castro, the Cuban leader, 81, has been sick and had to undergo intestinal surgery in July 2006.
Castro has ceded authority of Cuba to his younger brother Raul.
In their broadcast meeting Chavez, the Venezuelan President said this to Castro:
''You will never die. You remain forever on this continent and with these nations, and this revolution .... is more alive today than ever, and Fidel, you know it, we will take charge of continuing to fan the flame."
