Barack Obama in Kuba 9 Fakten zu Präsidentenreisen, die Sie noch nicht kennen

US President Barack Obama (L) and Cuban President Raul Castro shake hands during a meeting at the Revolution Palace in Havana on March 21, 2016.

Barack Obama wirbt um Kuba. Fast immer, wenn US-Präsidenten auf Reisen gehen, wird es historisch. Stephan Richter, Herausgeber von "The Globalist", hat neun besonders bemerkenswerte Fakten zur präsidialen US-Reisediplomatie zusammengetragen.

1. What is the significance of President Obama's trip to Cuba expected?

President Obama's March 20-22, 2016 visit is the second time any sitting U.S. president has visited the country. The first one happened in January 1928, when Calvin Coolidge attended the Pan American Conference in Havana.

Stephan-Götz Richter
The United States has had very hostile relations with Cuba since the late 1950s. Cuba is a former client state of the United States. Cuba has often influenced U.S. domestic politics - as far back as the early 19th century.
