Subject: Potus print pool 2 -- Cuba bilateral

Uneventful drive from hotel past Trump Towers to UN building.

At 10:09 am, pool moved into a small meeting room to see the brief handshake between Potus and Castro. They stood as the pool entered, and Castro laughed as he looked up and saw how much taller Potus is. They bottomed their suit jackets and shook hands. Sam Power, Ben Rhodes and John Kerry were there with Potus, but the pool was ushered out quickly before we could notice who else was there. Potus did not acknowledge shouted questions.

Bilateral is happening now as pool holds in interpretation booths overlooking the hall where the Countering ISIL meeting will take place.
