Cuban gov’t assures Obama will be welcomed with hospitality

Cuba’s government said Wednesday that it will receive U.S. president, Barack Obama, with hospitality later this month but will not change its socialist system after more than 50 years of confrontation with Washington.
An editorial in the state daily Granma said Obama’s visit between March 20-22 is part of the process of normalization of bilateral relations.
In the text, the Cuban government said it will be the first contact of Obama with the “revolutionary and sovereign Cuba”.
For Cubans, Obama’s visit to the island points the way towards full normalization of ties between the two nations separated by just 90 miles of ocean.
