Cuba’s President, Raul Castro, has showed interest to talk to the Obama administration and relieve more than 50 years of enmity following olive branches from the Washington. Cuba’s leader said he agreed to respond to USA’s effort to recast their diplomatic relations. However, he insisted Cuba’s socialist system was solid and would not be negotiable. He said, “We are ready to talk about everything but not to negotiate our political and social system,” he told the national assembly on Saturday.
In a standing ovation, Raul told he had not been elected Cuba’s President to return capitalism or surrender the revolution. He said “I have to say; with all due respect to Mrs Clinton … they didn’t elect me president to restore capitalism in Cuba, nor to hand over the revolution. I was elected to defend, maintain and continue perfecting socialism, not destroy it.”
February 24, 2008 Castro was elected President for National Assembly as his ailing brother Fidel Castro made announced his objective not to stand for President once more on 19, February, 2008.
78-year-old Cuba’s President said there was now an opportunity for negotiations that the White House had drabbed Bush-era aggression towards Havana. Castro said “It’s true there has been a diminution of the aggression and anti-Cuban rhetoric on the part of the administration.”
The USA is the only one country in the hemisphere to not get diplomatic ties with Cuba. Many critics consider it as anachronistic and self-defeating. However, Obama has authorized the continuation of discussion over migration and disaster preparedness which were severed throughout the Bush administration.
