Former Bolivian president Evo Morales said Sunday that he is returning to Argentina from Cuba, where he had gone for medical treatment last week.
"I feel very healthy. I am still in Cuba, but today is my return trip to Argentina," Morales said by telephone to Bolivia's Radio Kawaschum Coca (RKC) – owned by the coca planters union to which he belongs.
Morales, 60, travelled to Cuba from Buenos Aires on Monday for medical treatment. He has been living in Argentina after resigning as Bolivia's president in November and fleeing following three weeks of protests against his controversial re-election in a poll the OrganiSation of American States said was rigged.
He first sought asylum in Mexico and then settled a month later in Argentina.
