A White House official has confirmed that President Obama and the Cuban leader Raul Castro, will meet formally on Saturday, the second day of the America Summit in Panama. The highly symbolic meeting will be their first since the recent thaw in relations between their countries. The Presidents have shaken hands only once before informally at Nelson Mandela's memorial service in 2013. The U.S. State Department has recommended that Cuba be removed from its list of states said to sponsor terrorism.

Key Phrases/Words

1. symbolic adj. 象征的,象征性的

2. thaw v. 解冻,融雪,变缓和

3. terrorism n. 恐怖主义,恐怖手段,威吓,胁迫 
 


一名白宫官员证实,奥巴马总统与古巴领导人劳尔.卡斯特罗将在星期六,也就是巴拿马美洲峰会之后的第二天举行正式会谈。这将是近期两国关系解冻以来具有象征意义的首次会谈。两国领导人此前仅在2013年尼尔森.曼德拉的葬礼上有过一次非正式的握手。美国国务院已建议将古巴从支持恐怖主义的国家名单中去除。
