Obama Makes History, Visits Cuba – First in 88 Years

After 88 years of animosity and complete isolation, President Obama yet again made history by becoming the first American President to officially visit Cuba since 1928.

In continuation of the re-unification of American relationship with Cuba, Obama will be in Havana on a two day working visit. He will be meeting President Raul Castro, Fidel Castro and key Cuban political leaders to formalise trade, social and political ties.

America severed diplomatic relations with Cuba after the country allowed Russia to mount nuclear warhead on its territory targeting America in the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Cuba will be benefiting from American companies who are said to be keen in investing the struggling economy.
