Answer There is no year end to this lease, the lease will first end when US and Cuba both agree on the termination of the lease. according to the Platt Amendment,… the lease is indefiant at the cost of 2000 USD a year.
Answer The US first seized Guantanamo Bay and established a naval base there in 1898 during the Spanish-American War. In 1903, the US and Cuba signed… a lease granting the US permission to use the land as a coaling and naval station. The lease satisfied the Platt Amendment; this amendment stated a naval base at "certain specific points agreed upon by the President of the United States" was needed to "enable the United States to maintain independence of Cuba." The US and Cuba signed a treaty in 1934, granting the US a perpetual lease; private enterprise is not allowed under the treaty. Both the US and Cuba must agree on any termination of the lease, effectively making the land US soil since the US will never agree to give up the property.
Lease of Guantanamo Bay.After the Spanish/American War of 1898 a Lease Deal between Cuba and the United States was made. In 1903 Cuba allowed the United States to rent Guantan…amo Bay, and surrounding areas for the amount of only $2,000 per year. The lease period is forever as long as the U.S. makes the annual payment. Since Fidel Castro took power in 1959 he has refused to cash any of the rent checks. Although Guantanamo Bay is not a territory of the United States it is a U.S. Military Base and is defended in the same manner as all U.S. Military Bases around the world.
The U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay is both the oldest U.S. overseas base and the only one to be located within a Communist country. It is not considered an official territory,… overseen by the Department of the Interior, but is, instead, overseen by the U.S. Navy. The history of "GITMO" begins in December 1903, when the United States leases the 45 square miles of land and water from our then Ally, Cuba, for use, primarily as a coaling station. A later treaty, singed in 1943, reaffirmed and, effectively, prolonged the lease indefinitely. That lease granted Cuba and her trading partners free access through the bay, a payment of $2,000 in gold per year, which equates to roughly $4,085 in 2010, and added a requirement that both the U.S. and Cuba must mutually consent to terminate the lease.
Yes. To close Gitmo was one of Obama's campaign promises, but he never followed through on it.

The US assumed control of Guantanamo Bay in 1903, under the Cuban-American Treaty which grants the US a perpetual lease. The US gained control originally in 1901 under the… Platt Amendment, by which the US obtained the right to intervene in Cuba and to lease or buy land for a naval station. It was built in 1898 after the Spanish-American War and became a US Naval base because of its strategic importance. Guantanamo Bay is a detention camp us military operated by Joint Task Force.
