United Nations: US President Barack Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro at the United Nations today in a rare one-on-one meeting between the former Cold War foes as they work toward improving relations after decades of animosity.
Castro, in the first speech at the UN by a Cuban president since his older brother Fidel addressed the Millennium Summit in 2000, said on Monday the two countries can normalize ties only after Washington ends its trade embargo and returns the Guantanamo US naval base to Cuban control.
