Relations the USA and Cuba took a step becoming more normal Friday when the leaders the two countries, Raul Castro and Barack Obama, shook hands. They met briefly the Summit of the Americas Panama. This is a meeting countries in North, Central and South America to discuss a better future their continents. The historic handshake will help the USA and Cuba end their bitterness each other. The two countries have barely spoken more than 50 years. America banned its citizens visiting Cuba and banned most Cuban goods being exported to the USA. Over a decade ago, the USA declared Cuba was a sponsor international terrorism.

Castro and Obama are expected to have a sit- meeting. They will discuss how to make sure their countries can have a better future together. The meeting will be the highest-level talks the USA and Cuba since Richard Nixon and Fidel Castro met 1959. A US security advisor said: "The reason we're here is that the President strongly believes that an approach that was focused…totally seeking to cut the Cuban people the USA had failed." President Obama said: "I think the Cuban people are extraordinary and have huge potential. And what's encouraging is the overwhelming majority Cubans are interested …moving forward." The two countries are only 151 km apart.
