Cuban President Raul Castro has laid out the conditions to normalise relations with the United States, demanding an end to the embargo, the return of Guantanamo Bay and Havana’s removal from a terror list.
Mr Castro issued his demands a week after the highest-ranking US delegation to Havana in 35 years and Cuban officials held landmark talks aimed at reopening embassies and renewing ties that broke off in 1961.
The Cuban leader, brother of former president Fidel Castro, also warned Washington to cease interference in Cuba’s internal affairs.
“Everything appears to indicate that the aim is to foment an artificial political opposition via economic, political and communicational means,” Mr Castro told a summit in Costa Rica.
