French President Francois Hollande has met Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on a historic trip to Havana.

Hollande is the first French president to visit Cuba since 1898, and the first Western head of state on the island since its thaw with Washington.

Speaking earlier at the University of Havana, Hollande said France would do its utmost to ensure that "the measures which have so badly harmed Cuba's development can finally be repealed".

He was referring to the US trade embargo with Cuba, which remains in place, although relations between the US and Cuba have improved in recent months.
