Cuba’s Castro urges Obama to use executive powers to ease embargo

SAN JOSE – Cuban President Raul Castro on Wednesday urged US President Barack Obama to use executive powers to ease a decades-long embargo, and said he would not accept any pressures on Cuba’s internal affairs in talks with the United States. Castro said Obama could extend measures to soften the embargo like those announced for telecoms to the rest of the Cuban economy, telling a summit in Costa Rica he was aware that ending the embargo “will be a long and hard road”.
