ActualidadRT 16/10/2012 ,La crisis de los misiles: La guerra nuclear que nunca estalló ,Panamá estudia implementar el euro como moneda de curso legal ,

Se cumplen cincuenta años de la crisis de los misiles cubanos que llevó la tensión entre la URSS y EE.UU. hasta el máximo. El reportaje de nuestra corresponsal María Stárostina nos acerca la visión de algunos testigos de aquel momento decisivo de la diplomacia. José Testón ha vivido en este lugar los últimos 20 años. A primera vista, es una zona rural como cualquiera; sin embargo, este agricultor cubano cree que como esta no hay otra tierra en toda la isla. "Para mí la importancia que tiene eso fue que ahí era la protección de Cuba por la Unión Soviética. Entonces yo creo que es un lugar histórico", opina José. En 1962 en Pinar del Río, provincia occidental de Cuba, se alojaba uno de los regimientos soviéticos que se habían desplazado para proteger la isla de una posible invasión norteamericana. En aquel entonces, la Mayor de las Antillas era un joven Estado socialista que acaba de resistir un intento de cambio de poder. Tras el fracaso en la playa Girón, Washington empezó a preparar una nueva operación. Panamá estudia implementar el euro como moneda de curso legal El presidente de Panamá, Ricardo Martinelli, tras un encuentro con la canciller alemana, Angela Merkel, ha expresado su deseo de introducir el euro como moneda de curso legal en su país. Mientras que la zona euro sigue siendo el principal foco de preocupaciones de la economía mundial y la posibilidad de un eventual colapso de la moneda única europea se antoja cada vez más factible, Panamá busca mecanismos para implantar esa divisa paralelamente al dólar estadounidense. "En Panamá, la moneda de libre circulación es el dólar estadounidense y le dije a la canciller que estamos estudiando las vías para que el euro se convierta en otra moneda de curso legal y que sea aceptada en el mercado panameño", señaló el presidente centroamericano durante una rueda de prensa en Berlín. EE.UU. calla sobre leyes antiprotestas en Perú por sus intereses mineros En Perú reciben con entusiasmo a la secretaria de Estado norteamericana Hillary Clinton. Esta visita oficial llega poco después de que el secretario de Defensa de EE.UU., Leon Panetta, ofreciera al presidente Humala "asistencia en la lucha contra el terrorismo y el narcotráfico". Por su parte, el presidente Ollanta Humala, destacó que en la reunión que duró una hora se ha "coincidido también en la importancia de la salud y la educación como mecanismos de lucha contra la desigualdad y para generar capacidades en las poblaciones más pobres".

EE.UU. subió un 32% sus exportaciones a Irán pese a las sanciones Washington aprovechó las sanciones internacionales contra Irán para aumentar casi en una tercera parte sus exportaciones al país persa.

Cuba condena a cuatro años a un político español por homicidio imprudente La justicia cubana ha condenado al político español conservador Ángel Carromero a cuatro años de prisión por un delito de homicidio en el accidente de tráfico en el que murieron los opositores cubanos Oswaldo Payá y Harold Cepero. Se disuelve el Parlamento de Israel El presidente de la Knéset, Reuven Rivlin, la ha declarado disuelta después de una votación que daba luz verde a la convocatoria de elecciones legislativas anticipadas para enero próximo. La iniciativa fue promovida por el primer ministro israelí ante las dificultades que enfrentaba en sus intentos de aprobar los presupuestos para el 2013.
