Cuba's diplomatic finesse

Sunday, February 14, 2016

Cuba's role in global affairs seems to be growing with the hosting of a meeting between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow showing that its diplomatic finesse has not withered with US isolation. 

Just in time, there is an insightful article on the US effort to re-engage with Cuba available on the website GovExec. The article presents an interview with Jeffrey DeLaurentis - the senior US Foreign Service Officer responsible for much of the on-the-ground work. It's an incredible story and despite the sometimes one-sided approach, the article provides much insight into how the US has handled the challenges of re-engaging with its neighbor both on the US domestic front and on-the-ground in Cuba.
