Colombian journalist Ernesto Londoño, who campaign publishers of The New York Times about Cuba is attributed, is in Havana for work, as revealed on his Twitter account.
"Eager to travel to Cuba, which last visited as a college student, more than a decade," Londoño said in the social network before departure and showed a picture of his ticket Miami-Havana flight American Airlines.
"Happy to be in Havana on a working trip", released four hours later. "Which topics are you curious about?" he asked to his followers.
Ernesto Londono, 33, came to the Editorial Board of The New York Times last September. Previously he worked at The Washington Post.
Starting October 11, the New York Daily began publishing a weekly article dedicated to defending a change in US policy toward Cuba. So far are six. "And we intend to publish more," said Londoño.
Editorials in the last six weeks have called for ending the embargo and an exchange of the three Cuban spies imprisoned in the United States by the US contractor Alan Gross, imprisoned in Cuba. They have also criticized Washington programs to promote democracy in Cuba and the US program that helps Cuban doctors to escape from missions abroad organized by Cuban government.
Andrew Rosenthal, director of the Editorial Board of The New York Times said the series of articles on Cuba correspond to the historical stance that has had the newspaper regarding the embargo. Also with the view that supposedly the conditions for a resumption of relations between Washington and Havana are given "for the first time in over 50 years".
