President Raul Castro has warned Washington that Cuba will stay focused
on defence regardless of who wins November's presidential election.

But he failed to announce more changes to the Communist system during a
major address.

Mr Castro, a four-star general, instead highlighted the past as he spoke
to thousands of cheering supporters in front of the Moncada military
complex, where rebels led by his brother Fidel launched an attack 55
years ago and planted the seeds for the 1959 Cuban revolution.
