Havana (AFP) – On a landmark visit to Havana, US President Barack Obama on Monday hailed a “new day” — a “nuevo dia” — in relations between the decades-long Cold War foes.

Trying to draw a line under past heavy-handed US intervention in the island’s affairs, Obama vowed that “Cuba’s destiny will not be decided by the United States or any other nation.”
