Obama And Raul Castro Had A Historically...Awkward Handshake
Bilateral hand holding.
President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro delivered statements to the press Monday, during Obama's historic three-day visit to Cuba.
Things got a little awkward when the two presidents discussed human rights and democracy, with Obama calling Cuba's record a "powerful irritant" in the relationship between the two nations.
Castro also appeared irritable when asked by a reporter about Cuban political prisoners, and responded, "What political prisoners? Give me names. After this meeting, you can give me a list of political prisoners and they will be released."
