Subject: WH Travel Pool 4/10 #16c - POTUS/Castro greeting
Statement from Bernadette Meehan, National Security Council Spokesperson:
“At the Summit of the Americas this evening, President Obama and President Castro greeted each other and shook hands.”
A WH official characterizes this as an informal interaction, with no substantive conversation between the two. It would have occurred before the inaugural program here.
President Varela has just concluded his remarks. A Panamanian marching band, sporting red blazers with gold buttons and white pants, now performing.
