Dubna, April 6 (RHC)-- Fidel Castro Díaz-Balart, Scientific Advisor to President Raúl Castro, is heading the country's delegation to activities in the Russian city of Dubna on the 60th anniversary of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research.

Addressing participants in a solemn session to mark the occasion, Castro Díaz-Balart, who is also the Deputy President of the Cuban Academy of Sciences, referred to the training of nearly one hundred Cuban specialists at the institute over the past several years. He thanked authorities at the institute, saying that without the opportunity, Cuban researchers would have never gained access to otherwise extremely expensive nuclear research.

The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research is a Dubna-based international intergovernmental organization created on March 26, 1956, to unify the intellectual and material potential of Member States to study the fundamental properties of matter. Cuba joined the organization 40 years ago.
