Newsline: Cuba and the US, one year of diplomatic ties

It has been a year since the US and Cuba restored full diplomatic ties after more than five decades of frosty relations rooted in the Cold War. The US broke off ties with Cuban following the 1959 Communist revolution led by former Cuban President Fidel Castro. On March 20, 2016, US President Barack Obama was welcomed by cheering crowds in Havana at the start of a historic visit to Cuba that opened a new chapter in US engagement with the island’s government. Since the restoration of diplomatic relations, the states have signed telecommunication deals and put into place airline services but obstacles remain.
