Chinese Army Chief Visits Cuba

                   HAVANA, Dec 27, 2000 -- (Agence France Presse) General
Fu Quanyou, chief of the General Staff of China's People's Liberation
Army, arrived Tuesday in Havana to start a four-day visit to the communist
island, during which he will meet with Cuban military commanders.

                   He was greeted at the airport by his Cuban counterpart,
Alvaro Lopez.

                   Fu told the official news agency Prensa Latina that his
visit would foster closer relations between the military forces of the two

                   "We support each other and help each other because we
have the same objective: the construction of socialism," Fu said.

                   He was to visit a number of military installations and
meet with troops during his visit, which was due to end December 30. ((c)
