HAVANA - Cuban President Raul Castro accused the United States on Thursday of seeking an overthrow of the Cuban government similar to Arab Spring countries, while reiterating his government's willingness to negotiate with its decades old foe.

"“The day they want (to talk) the table is served," Castro said in a nationally televised address on one of the biggest days in Cuba's political calendar.

Hostile rhetoric between the two governments has heated up in recent months as election cycles in both countries take place, with the White House criticizing Havana for its repression of dissent.
