The German foreign minister comes to Cuba to join the thaw
Germany will join to thaw with Cuba on Thursday with the trip to Havana of Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, just four days before the island and United States resume diplomatic relations.
"Cuba and the world come together where there was a wall of distrust for a long time," Steinmeier said in explaining the reasons for the trip.
During his visit of about 30 hours to Havana, Steinmeier will meet with his counterpart Bruno Rodriguez. Although it is possible that the social democratic politician can also be received by President Raul Castro, the German side said that the meeting is not on the agenda, nor a meeting with Fidel Castro.
For the Berlin government it is formally open the door to an approach to the island, after already begun by the European Union in April 2014, and countries such as France and the Netherlands.
