France's Hollande calls for US to lift Cuba embargo
23 Minutes ago.
French President François Hollande, on a historic trip to Havana, has called for an end to the US embargo on Cuba.
The embargo is still in place, although relations between the US and Cuba have improved in recent months.
Speaking at the University of Havana, Mr Hollande said France would do its utmost to ensure that "the measures which have so badly harmed Cuba's development can finally be repealed".
He is the first French president to visit Cuba since its independence.
