已经度过星期五的一所学校的教师让我告诉大家星期四真的太美妙了!欢迎收看我们2014年倒数第二期的节目,我们首先关注古巴。

a teacher whose school is out fridays, asked me to say thursdays are epic! welcome to our pan-ultimate program of 2014, it starts with news concerning cuba.

yesterday, president obama announced a major change in relations between the u.s. and cuba. the u.s. government is reopening its embassy in the communist country. it's allowing travel and trade that's been banned since president kennedy was in office. the two nations have been at odd since 1959 when communists overthrew the island's government and took control.

during the cold war, it's a rivalry between the u.s. and soviet union. cuba was an ally of the soviet union. at point allowing nuclear missiles to be installed as a threat to the u.s.

in an effort to punish cuba, the u.s. put an embargo in place, a ban on trade with cuba. u.s. officials hope that isolating the country would influence its government to turn from communism and give its people more freedom. president obama says that didn't work.

i believe that we can do more to support the cuban people and promote our values through engagements.

after all, these 50 years have shown that isolation hasn't worked. it's time for a new approach.

part of that approach involved an exchange of prisoners, the u.s. sent three convicted cuban spies back to their home country.cuba sent home a u.s. intelligence agent.also, cuba freed alan gross, a 65-year old american.he'd served five years in a cuban prison for delivering phone equipment that could access the internet.cuba's government restricts internet use.
