US-Cuba Normalization

Statements on the One-Year Anniversary of the US-Cuba Normalization Process

On December 17, 2014 President Barack Obama announced a policy change intended to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba. Over this year, many steps have been taken to end “a failed policy of isolation,” including reestablishing diplomatic relations, facilitating greater travel, commerce, and building bridges between Cubans and Americas. This is a long-term process where the areas of mutual interest are being addressed, while the US insists in supporting democracy and human rights.
