After historic trip to Cuba, French President François Hollande to visit Haiti | Miami Herald

Before his hour-long visit with Fidel Castro, Hollande, speaking at the University of Havana, called for the lifting of the U.S. trade embargo. France, he said, would do what it could to ensure that “the measures that have so badly harmed Cuba’s development can finally be lifted, repealed.” Hollande was the first French president to visit Cuba since the country’s 1898 independence, and the first Western head of state to travel to the island since the thawing of relations with the United States in December.
