Cuba and the U.S. open embassies

The agreement between Cuba and the U.S. to restore diplomatic relations and open embassies in their respective capitals will be announced today; July 1, 2015

The restoration of diplomatic relations between our countries will open opportunities for the U.S. and Cuba to collaborate on issues of mutual interest like immigration, environmental conservation, and regional trade long held at bay by the embargo. We congratulate the tireless work of activists, Cuban and U.S. diplomats and policymakers who have helped make this historic event come to fruition.
