Obama, Mexican president discuss Cuba and drug cartels

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama said on Tuesday the United States would insist that human rights in Cuba be discussed at a Summit of the Americas later this year and that Washington would help crack down on drug cartels in Mexico.

Obama, in a White House meeting with Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto, said the two men had discussed the shift in relations between the United States and Cuba, long a sore spot in Latin America.
