US And Cuba To Reopen Embassies After 54 Years Despite Dissonance From The Congress

In a bid to renew ties, the governments of Cuba and the US have come to an agreement to reopen embassies in the respective countries on July 20. This is said to be a historical moment in the relationship of the two nations.

They have not had any sort of diplomatic relations with each other for the past 54 years. The resumption of diplomatic ties is sure to push US diplomats into  a more comfortable position to discuss matters with their Cuban counterparts.

American diplomats currently require permission of the Cuban government before they can move around on the island. This is going to change in a few days.

Cuban President Raul Castro and US President Barack Obama agreed to renew congenial relations in December. Reopening of respective embassies was on priority in the four rounds of discussion conducted.

But the reopening of embassies is not likely to brush matters of differences between the two countries under the carpet. There have been differences on issues like human rights in Cuba and the way the government is run in Cuba.

There is trade embargoes effective on Cuba that are to remain without Congressional intervention.

Obama's enthusiasm for the Cubans is not supported by the Congress. The reopening of ties is being viewed as a one-sided love-affair that is tilted in the favour of the Cubans.

Quite a majority of the senators are not in favour of renewal of ties till the situation in the island improves at the human rights front. Cuba has been removed from the list of nations recognised by the US to be responsible for sponsoring terrorism.

The US Congress is critical of this also.
