EU lifts Cuba sanctions
The European Union has agreed to lift its sanctions on Cuba, diplomats have said.
Benita Ferrer-Waldner, EU external relations commissioner, said the decision was made in the hope of encouraging more reforms by Raul Castro, the Cuban leader, and moves toward democracy.
The move is a largely symbolic gesture as the sanctions have been suspended since 2005.
