Cuban Diplomat Praises ‘Direct Contact’ With US
Buenos Aires Herald
The Cuban Foreign Ministry’s chief diplomat for US affairs Josefina Vidal said that both countries sustain “direct contacts” after a second round of talks in Washington, following the historic breakthrough in the bilateral standoff, when ties were restored between the two nations ending a 50-year stalemate.
Vidal said that both talks, one in Havana and the latest in Washington, have been “productive,” although she pointed out that “there are different approaches” between the two delegations.
Speaking in Cuban national TV, the diplomat insisted on her government claim to be removed from an “unfair” list of terrorist states annually released by the US since 1982.
She said that her US counterparts are “working to solve this issue.”
