US makes plea to overcome 'Cold War diplomacy'

US President Barack Obama speaks during a forum with Brazil´s President Dilma Rousseff and Colombia´s President Juan Manuel Santos at the CEO Summit of the Americas, within the framework of the VI Summit of the Americas, in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, on April 14, 2012.

US President Barack Obama called for the possibility of overcoming “the diplomacy of the Cold War,” today in reference to the dispute with Cuba, whilst participating in the CEO summit given prior to the inauguration of the VI Summit of the Americas taking place in Cartagena, Colombia.

“Sometimes it feels as though some of the conversations that take place are lost in time, dating back to the 50s: talking about the Cold War diplomcy, the yanquis. That’s not the world we are living in anymore,” Obama stated during the press conference.

“I hope that we are able to recognise this enormous opportunity that we have and take advantage of it. I know that the businessmen who are present here understand it, they understand that they are in a new world and that we have to think with new visions,” the US Head of State added.

Obama was participating in the business meeting accompanied by his Brazilian counterpart, Dilma Rousseff and from Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos. Both parties agreed, although the official Summit had not yet begun, that this would be the “last time” that Cuba would not be invited to such a meeting.
