Cuban leader demands end of US embargo to renew ties

AFP , Wednesday 28 Jan 2015

Cuban President Raul Castro demanded on Wednesday an end to the US embargo against his country in order to make progress in talks to normalize relations.

"The main problem has not been resolved: the economic, commercial and financial blockade, which causes huge human and economic damage and is a violation of international rights," Castro said at a Latin American summit in Costa Rica, one week after Washington and Havana inaugurated the historic talks.
