With just weeks to go before Americans vote for a new president, Associated Press has published a handy summary of where the two key contenders – Barrack Obama and John McCain – stand on a number of issues.

According to the news agency, this is where the two men stand when it comes to US policy towards the Castro brothers:

McCain: Ease restrictions on Cuba once US is "confident that the transition to a free and open democracy is being made."

Obama: Ease restrictions on family-related travel and on money Cuban-Americans want to send to their families in Cuba. Open to meeting new Cuban leader Raul Castro without preconditions. Ease trade embargo if Havana "begins opening Cuba to meaningful democratic change."
