President Barack Obama released a statement on the death of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
In the statement, Obama offers condolences while acknowledging the history between Cuba and the United States. Obama notes that during his presidency, he worked on establishing more cordial relations with Cuba.
In March, Obama traveled to Cuba and met with President Raul Castro. Air travel restrictions between the two countries have been eased, with commercial flights resuming in August, a result of the Obama administration's new diplomatic policy with Cuba.
