The US and Cuba take the first step towards reconciliation

Havana has much to gain from reopening to the US, especially as Venezuela teeters on the edge.

The most important announcements concerned the resumption of high-level political discussions focused on renewing formal diplomatic ties between the countries, which have been nonexistent since 1961. Cuban and US officials will hold high-level meetings in the coming months, and the two countries will work toward establishing embassies in Havana and Washington.
