#AskCubaUS on Twitter to hear from Josefina Vidal, the Cuban diplomat who led U.S.-Cuba talks on normalizing relations.
While Cuba-U.S. relations have finally begun thawing after decades of U.S. hostility – marked by the reopening of the U.S. Embassy in Havana in Aug. 2015 – many issues remain, such as the continued blockade against the island nation and Washington’s refusal to return the Guantanamo Bay.
Friday afternoon is your chance to have your voice heard. You can ask questions directly to the Cuban government. Josefina Vidal, general director of Cuba’s U.S. Division in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will host a question and answer session on Twitter from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, right after her participation in the the fourth meeting of the U.S.-Cuba Bilateral Commission in Washington, D.C.
Under the hashtag #AskCubaUS, Vidal will answer questions through her Twitter account @JosefinaVidalF about the progress of talks between Washington and Havana aimed at a full restoration of relations between both nations.
During the meeting, the parties will discuss the results achieved since the previous meeting of the commission in May and agree on new steps to promote the normalization of relations among other issues.
