Meanwhile, North Korea has awarded Castro a “Labor Hero” decoration:

SEOUL, Dec. 13 (Yonhap) — North Korea has awarded its decorative title of Labor Hero to Cuban President Fidel Castro, the country’s official news agency reported late Tuesday.

“A ceremony awarding the title of Labor Hero to the chairman of the national committee of Cuba, Fidel Castro, was held on the occasion of his 80th birthday at the DPRK Embassy in Cuba on the 11th (Tuesday),” the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

DPRK stands for the North’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

The title of “hero,” which comes in only two forms, DPRK Hero or Labor Hero, is one of the highest honors awarded in the communist state, according to experts.

“Chairman Castro is a leader who has actively supported the DPRK people’s struggle for independence, unification of their motherland and construction of a socialist nation,” Pak Tong-chun, the North’s envoy to Havana, was quoted as saying at the ceremony.
