In Cuba, France’s Hollande urges US to end embargo


HAVANA: French President Francois Hollande called Monday for an end to the US embargo on Cuba, during the first visit by a Western leader to the island since Washington and Havana moved to restore ties. Addressing the half-century-old trade embargo ahead of meetings with Fidel and Raul Castro, the brothers who have ruled Cuba since its 1959 revolution, Hollande said France will do whatever possible to see that “the measures that have so badly harmed Cuba’s development can finally be lifted, repealed.”
