U.S. President Barack Obama does not plan to return to Cuba the territory on which the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo is located, although he will achieve his aim of closing the prison set up there, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Thursday.

During his speech on Wednesday before the CELAC summit in Costa Rica, Cuban President Raul Castro mentioned the return of Guantanamo as one of the pending matters in the process launched to normalize relations with Washington.
