Obama: - The Cold War is over for Cuba

 
Obama: - The Cold War is over for Cuba
- The Cold War is over, Obama said after he had done what no American president had done in 59 years - sat down and spoke directly with the Cuban leader.

Last December the two men agreed to work to normalize relations between their nations, which involves restoring diplomatic ties that Washington cut in 1961.

A new chapter has begun in the relations between Cuba and the United States Obama declared and thanked Castro for his courteous and open mind.

- Cuba poses no threat to the United States, Obama said after the historic moment during the Pan-American summit this weekend.

On Friday it was announced that the US State Department will recommend to remove Cuba from the list of states that support terrorism - a primary requirement Castro had before any embassies can open.

The recommendation increases Cubas chance of being delisted from the terrorist states blacklist, which has countries such as Syria and Iran on it.

Before traveling back to Washington on Sunday, Obama said that he has not yet decided on the case. But according to sources in Washington the decision will come within the next few days, and efforts to reopen embassies will get started relatively fast.

Obama has faced criticism for the dramatic change of course on the Cuba policy. Critics say he gives too much, too quickly without first requiring political reform in the nation.
