    Former Cuban President Fidel Castro has warned that the world is on the brink of nuclear war which threatens all of humanity.

    On a Cuban government website, the ageing Castro could be seen repeating his warnings that nuclear war was imminent if the US, in alliance with Israel, attacks Iran.

    "The use of nuclear arms in a new war implies the end of humanity," he said. "Any world government is obligated to respect the right to life of all nations and of the entirety of the world's people. Today, there is an imminent risk of war using this type of weapon and I do not harbor the slightest doubt that an attack by the United States and Israel against the Islamic Republic of Iran would inevitably become a global nuclear conflict," he said

    In July, the 84-year-old leader of Cuba's Revolution emerged from four years of seclusion following a 2006 illness that led to his ceding power to his brother, current Cuban President Raul Castro.

    Since July, Fidel has made several public appearances, all repeating his dire predictions.
