After Meeting With Putin, Obama Meets With Castro
President Obama met with Cuban President Raul Castro in New York this morning, for the second time this year. The meeting took place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, which Castro is attending for the first time.
The General Assembly also brought together Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday for their first face-to-face meeting in nearly two years. That meeting appears to have done little to resolve tensions between Russia and the United States on the issue of how to deal with ISIS and Syria.
Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson gets the latest on both meetings from NPR’s Scott Horsely, who is at the UN.
