James Carter in Cuba

Former president Jimmy Carter has arrived in Cuba on a three-day, non-governmental visit.

Carter, who is accompanied by his wife, Rosalynn, will meet with President Raul Castro and other Cuban officials.

It is Carter’s second trip to the island. In 2002, he met with then-President Fidel Castro and addressed the public at the University of Havana. He is the only U.S. president to visit Cuba.

After arrival with wife Rosalynn, Carter’s first public event will be with Havana’s Jewish community.
