The three days historical visit of President Barack Obama concludes today with a hopeful vision for future relations. Before his departure, he will meet with Cuban dissidents today and watch a baseball game with the communist country's president. Yesterday, Cuban President Raul Castro and US President Barack Obama sparred over human rights issues including the American prison at Guantanamo Bay and Cuba's political prisoners.
At a historic news conference, Mr Castro said if he was

given a list of political prisoners, he would release them tonight. More needs to be done to lift the US embargo on trade with Cuba, Mr Castro said, adding that the Guantanamo Bay detention camp must close.
Mr Obama, the first serving US president to visit Cuba since 1959, said the trade embargo would be fully lifted. Cuba's destiny will not be decided by the United States or any other nation. The future of Cuba will be decided by Cubans not by anybody else, Mr Obama said.
