Latin American Media Highlight Obama’s Visit to Cuba

Q24N (Prensa Latina) Media from Latin American countries highlight on their covers the official visit President Barack Obama began today in Cuba, where he will meet with his counterpart Raul Castro.

Obama Visits Cuba to Seal a Spectacular Approach and Obama Starts Historic Visit to Cuba, are some of the headlines in El Salvador newspapers as El Diario de Hoy, La Prensa Grafica, El Mundo, La Pagina, Diario 1, and others that describe the event as historical.

In Nicaragua, El 19 newspaper published details of the arrival of the president and his family at the Jose Marti International Airport in Havana, where he was received by Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, under the title Cuba Receives President Barack Obama.

Meanwhile, the website of the radio station Nueva Radio Ya illustrated with images the news, while reporting the planned agenda during the stay of the head of state, in which a meeting tomorrow with President Raul Castro stands.

Obama, on official visit to Cuba, is the headline of the news leading the digital page Radio Primerísima, which emphasizes that it is the first visit of a dignitary of that country to Havana in almost 90 years. The previous visit occurred in January 1928, when Calvin Coolidge attended the Sixth Annual International Conference of American States, held in Havana.

More than half a century after Washington broke ties with the island, Raul Castro and Obama announced on December 17, 2014 the decision to restore diplomatic relations.

However, Cuban authorities consider the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by Washington against Cuba for more than 50 years ago as the main obstacle towards normalization of bilateral ties.

Cuban top officials also required to improve ties, the return of the territory illegally occupied by the US Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, as well as the cessation of illegal transmissions to Cuba and abandonment of subversive programs to change the political system in the island.
