Castro and Obama are in New York City to attend the 70th anniversary general assembly meetings.
The CUBA trip of U S president Barak Obama is being criticized because, as per the critics view his trip will legitimize a government that tramples on human rights. The president outlined his Cuba trip to CNN en Espanol, answering critics that he plans to meet with dissidents and is hoping to expand U.S. business activity on the island to slowly help bring democratic reforms. Which is clearly defending his plan to visit Cuba next week. He told CNN en Espanol “It was my view that a policy that hasn’t worked for 50 years, since I was born, demands a re-evaluation, ”. “They’re absolutely wrong. We will speak out about human rights, and during my visit I intend to visit with dissidents who are critics of the Cuban government,” he added. He is having a number of plans during his visit of 2 days.
The president will meet with Cuban Leader Raul Castro alone as there is no meeting with his older brother Fidel. He will attend an exhibition baseball game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team. As per the report of Wall Street Journal American companies like Marriott, Starwood and AT&T may announce deals to do business in Cuba and which will be a beneficial deal for the country. As per the views of mr President the expansion of presence of United states in the Cuba can be the best way to promote the value of America. He again added with his powerful voice in favor of his trip to cuba “The more that U.S. businesses are engaged there, the more Americans that visit and the more Cuban Americans that visit their families, the more likely we will see the changes we are all hoping for,” . He also kept his view that The embargo which is imposed by US on Cuba is totally limiting U.S. business expansion commercially, economically and financially. He said he hopes the next president will be able to lift the 56-year-old embargo once and for all.
