President Obama has met and shaken hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro for the first time since announcing his intention last December to normalize relations with communist Cuba. The brief encounter happened Friday at the Summit of the Americas in Panama. The handshake is to be followed by a more substantial conversation between the two leaders Saturday. VOA White House correspondent Luis Ramirez is traveling with the U.S. president and has this report from Panama City.
