Obama Visits Cuba in Historic Trip, But Will U.S. Ever End Embargo & Give Back Guantanamo?
March 21, 2016
Obama is scheduled to meet Cuban President RaÃºl Castro this morning at the Palace of the Revolution in Havana. While diplomatic ties have been restored between the two countries, many issues remain unsolved. The 54-year-old U.S. trade embargo on Cuba remains in place. The United States has also refused to give up control of its Navy base and military prison at GuantÃ¡namo Bay in Cuba. Last year, RaÃºl Castro said Cuba will not be able to normalize relations with the United States until Washington returns GuantÃ¡namo to Cuba. We go to Havana to speak with former Cuban diplomat Carlos Alzugaray Treto and Peter Kornbluh, director of the Cuba Documentation Project at the National Security Archive in Washington, D.C.
