US FLAG FLIES IN CUBA

News

The US flag will be raised over the American Embassy in Cuba for the first time in 54 years despite mistrust and a call from former President Fidel Castro for the United States to pay millions in reparations.
In fact, it is the Cuban government, which seized billions in properties from private US firms and wealthy Cubans.

Secretary of State John Kerry leads a delegation to the embassy in Habana, including members of Congress, selected Cuban-American entrepreneurs and a large contingent of media, as well as retired Marines who last lowered the flag in January 1961.

Kerry's visit is the first by a US Secretary of State since 1945 and it will help war up to a post-Cold War mentality on the island.
