I appreciate this opportunity to discuss with my fellow Americans our relationship with Cuba, which I believe is an important foreign policy issue today. I hope I can shed some light on the issue of our relations with Cuba by answering a few of your questions.

I am delighted to engage with you on the occasion of the President's Iftaar dinner to be held tonight at the White House. President Bush has made it an annual tradition to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan, a month that is important to American Muslims and to Muslims around the world.
