US President Barack Obama defended Saturday his diplomatic detente with Havana, saying after historic talks with Cuban President Raul Castro that a "strong majority" in Cuba and the United States back the move.
"I think there is a strong majority both in the United States and in Cuba that says our ability to engage, to open up commerce and travel and people to people exchanges is ultimately going to be good for Cuban people," Obama told a news conference after attending the Summit of the Americas in Panama's capital.
