China signs trade deals with Cuba -Nov. 18, 2008

Chinese President Hu Jintao visits Fidel Castro in Havana, capital of Cuba, Nov. 18, 2008.
The Chinese leader brought 4.5 tons of humanitarian aid for victims of three hurricanes that battered Cuba this year, which was handed over late Monday after Hu's arrival at the Jose Marti International Airport.
China also extended Cuba a 70-million-dollar loan to repair damaged hospitals and another 10 million for social projects, as part of the second tranche of a 350-million-dollar line of credit approved in 2004.
