SPECIAL: US and Cuba Normalise Relations
Issued on: Modified:
'Todos somos Americanos'. That was the US President Barack Obama's message as he and Cuban president Raul Castro hailed a new chapter in US relations with Cuba. In simultaneous televised addresses, the pair announced a historic move to normalise diplomatic and economic ties. US-Cuba relations have been fraught since the 1960s, when the US imposed a trade embargo after Cuba's communist revolution.
