religious summit on the island-nation of Cuba will include not only leaders of the country's Jewish and Catholic communities but also former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Cuban President Raul Castro (the brother of Fidel Castro).
President Carter is the first American leader who has held the top office to visit the island since the 1959 revolution in Cuba. Reportedly, the meeting will be "private" involving "non-governmental" business. However, topics will reportedly include ways to improve U.S.-Cuban relations.
