Euronews quotes Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center Assistant Director Rachel DeLevie-Orey on the United States and Cuba normalizing diplomatic relations:
Indeed some in the US have misgivings about the overtures being made by Washington.
Rachel DeLevie-Orey who is a Latin America analyst at the Atlantic Council:
“The treatment of dissidents, human rights, access to information, all of these things will continue to be a point of conflict, a sticking point. But these are conflicts that we have with governments across the globe.”
Since 1977, the US and Cuba have operated diplomatic missions called “interests sections” in each other’s capitals, but they do not enjoy the same status as full embassies. Cubans view the change as an improvement.
