Subject: Travel pool report #11 - news: Presidents Obama and Castro are meeting

‎President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro are meeting in a small room inside the convention center.

The much-anticipated sit-down is the first meeting between a US and a Cuban president in more than half a century.

Messrs. Obama and Castro are seated next to each other in separate chairs, the same set up as when world leaders are hosted in the Oval Office‎.

At 2:45pm a U.S. pool of reporters and a contingent of 8 Cubans, including 2 with video‎ cameras and 1 still photographer, entered the room.

Both presidents will be making remarks.

Your pooler will send quotes in several takes, as the meeting is not able to be carried live. A fuller pool report with color will follow.
