President Barack Obama to visit Cuba in the coming weeks
A senior administration official told NBC News on Wednesday night President Barack Obama will visit Cuba in the coming weeks. The official said details would be announced Thursday as part of a larger tour by Obama of Latin America. Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro announced in December 2014 that they would normalize relations after decades of broken ties. Obama and Castro met last April in Panama in the first official meeting of the leaders of the two nations since the United States cut diplomatic relations in 1961 after Castro's brother, Fidel Castro, seized power.
