CHINESE COMMUNIST POLITBUREAU MEMBER VISITS CUBA By Ricardo González Alfonso, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - Certain members of the Havana population expressed their disgust about the visit to Cuba of Wei Jianxing, member of the Permanent Committee of the Chinese Communist Party Politbureau in conversations with this correspondent.

"It is an opportunistic act," some of those critics told Cuba Free Press, remembering the prolonged diplomatic crisis that existed between Cuba and China until the fall of the Soviet Union.

The tension was most evident between the countries when the late President R. Nixon visited Beijing and during the backing by the Asiatic giant of the armed opponents that fought against the Angolan government.

In his voyage across the island, Wei Jianxing expressed special interest in the petroleum and tourist industries.
