Cuban Foreign Minister, Felipe Perez Roque, has asked for the return of Guantánamo Bay from the United States. Cuba has tried to get the territory where the US army base is located back since 1959, but Guantánamo bay has been in American hands since the 19th century.
Now that US President Barack Obama has decided to close the prison camp at the base, there is new hope in Havana. The contract for the territory can only be annulled if both Cuba and the United States agree.
