Address to the Cuban People During the first visit of a U.S. president to Cuba since 1928, Former President Carter addresses the Cuban people at a gathering at the University of Havana. In his remarks, delivered in Spanish, he implored Cuba to “join the community of democracies,” and endorsed the right of Cuban dissidents to seek government change through direct elections. He also said that the relations between Cuba and the U.S. could be improved by lifting the U.S. embargo and allowing unrestricted travel between the two countries.
