Castro Says Obama Misinterpreted Comments

HAVANA (AP) - Fidel Castro says that President Barack Obama
"misinterpreted" his brother Raul's sentiments toward the United
States.

Raul Castro prompted widespread speculation last week that the
U.S. and Cuba could be headed toward a thaw in nearly a
half-century of chilly relations, when he said Cuban leaders would
be willing to discuss "everything" with the U.S., including human
rights, freedom of the press and speech, and political prisoners.

Obama responded by saying Washington seeks a new beginning with
Cuba but he also said that Cuba should release some political
prisoners and reduce official taxes on remittances from the U.S. as
a sign of goodwill.

Fidel Castro wrote in an essay on Tuesday that Obama "without a
doubt misinterpreted Raul's declarations."
