Leader: Cuba main topic at Summit of the Americas

Trinidad's prime minister says Cuba is going to be a main topic at next month's Summit of the Americas.

Patrick Manning, visiting Brazil Thursday, told reporters the topic of Cuba and the U.S. sanctions on the communist nation ``is on everyone's lips.''

He also said he thinks there will be agreement on how best to deal with the question of Cuba and incorporating it back into relations in the Western Hemisphere.

Manning's nation plays host to the summit -- a meeting which Cuba is not invited to attend.

The leader was careful to say he did not want Cuba to become a divisive issue at the summit -- especially as he says President Barack Obama appears set to improve relations with Latin America.
