As Latin American leaders applaud a historic thawing of animosity between the United States and Cuba, U.S. President Barack Obama will meet Raul Castro for talks on Saturday that could further boost his reputation in the region.Obama and the Cuban president shook hands and spoke briefly at the opening ceremony of the Summit of the Americas on Friday night, a gesture that drew praise from other leaders who have in recent years called for changes in U.S. policy on Cuba. Obama seems close to removing Cuba from a U.S. list of countries that it says sponsor terrorism.Taking Cuba off the U.S. terrorism list would accelerate the detente, although it is not clear how soon Obama will announce it.
