Observation of a Cuba watcher

For the past year, this Cuba watcher has been reporting a “slow but steady improvement in relations” between Cuba and the U.S., including talks on direct mail service, migration, cooperation in reactions to oil spills. A senior American official Edward Alex Lee last week said in Havana, the U.S. is “very open” to building a new relationship with Cuba. He also visited jailed U.S. government subcontractor Alan Gross, adding that the U.S. was “deeply concerned “about his wellbeing and expressed the hope that Cuban government would free him.
