Obama holds historic meeting with Cuba's Castro

Monday, April 13, 2015 | Tag Cloud

President Obama held a historic formal meeting with Cuban President Raul Castro Saturday, the first between US and Cuban leaders in over half a century, pledging to 'turn the page' and develop a new relationship between the two countries, Fox News reported Sunday.

The two leaders shook hands Friday at the start of the summit and met Saturday on the sidelines of the a Panama City convention center.

Obama and Castro met for about an hour, with Obama telling reporters before the meeting that, after 50 years of unchanged policy, it was time to try something new and to engage with both Cuba's government and its people.

"What we have both concluded is that we can disagree with a spirit of respect and civility," Obama said. "And over time, it is possible for us to turn the page and develop a new relationship between our two countries." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/04/12/obama-makes-further-attempts-to-closen-ties-with-cuba-still-undecided-about/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
