CUBA - President Barack Obama was left hanging after he attempted to hug Cuban President Raul Castro after a presser in Cuba on Tuesday.

 

 

It was a historical moment between the two presidents when Obama told Cubans that he had come to the communist island to "bury" decades of Cold War conflict.

At the end of the press conference the two leaders announced the signing of agreements to increase cooperation and economic investment between their countries.

All this ended in one awkward moment when Obama tried to hug Castro who was not feeling the love.
