Obama Pledges to Fund Postal Services for Cuba Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Dec 23, 2013, 07:30 PM

President Barack Obama is preparing to utilize USAID funding to finance postal services in Communist-led Cuba. He is even considering deporting Cuban-born dissidents living in the US and return them to Havana, to improve relations between the two Socialist countries, which are neighbors.

According to the BBC News, "In a rare public speech, Mr Castro said Cuban and American officials had met several times over the last year to discuss practical matters, such as immigration and the re-establishment of a postal service."

Mr. Castro and Obama shook hands at Nelson Mandela's funeral, which signaled a thaw in diplomatic relations.

As reported by the BBC News, "Cuban President Raul Castro has called for "civilised relations" with the United States, saying the two countries should respect their differences.  President Castro said the US should drop its demand for regime change on the communist-run island."

Castro disclosed that US State Department officials have met Cuban officials on numerous occassions this year to improve ties.
