A new chapter is starting relations between the USA and Cuba. The two countries have had very little contact each other over fifty years. That changed Wednesday when US President Barack Obama announced he wanted to get the relationship the USA and Cuba back to normal. One of the first things President Obama wants to do is to restore diplomatic and economic ties. He told reporters that: "Today, America chooses to cut loose the shackles the past." Cuban President Raul Castro said: "We have agreed to re-establish diplomatic relations." The two sides have been secret talks more than a year. Some negotiations were the Vatican and included help Pope Francis.

The White House announced a series actions to reset relations the two nations. The USA will no longer state that Cuba sponsors terrorism. It will be easier US citizens to travel to and do business Cuba. There will also be better telephone and Internet access people to communicate each other. A major change is the lifting the 54-year-old trade embargo that stops US goods going to Cuba and all Cuban goods going to the USA. Mr Castro said he has worked hard the normalisation of ties with the USA. He said he hoped the two countries could now share a brighter future together. He told reporters: "We must learn the art coexisting with our differences a civilised manner."
