A new relation ‘based on mutual respect’

April 15, 2015

NYC Havana Blog

During today’s historic meeting between President Raúl Castro and President Barack Obama, Castro emphasized that the island nation’s government is willing to dialogue with the U.S. very patiently: “In some things we will agree and with others we will not.”

President Castro stressed that there may be issues that the countries may not agree on presently, but that may be resolved in the long term. “It’s been a complicated history,” said Castro, “but we are willing to move forward and enter into a friendship between our peoples.” This should occur simultaneously between the meeting that are “taking place to restore our [diplomatic] relations,” he added.

For his part, President Obama thanked the Cuban president for his “openness” and said he hoped to “move forward transforming our relation to one based on mutual respect.” He added that “my policy will be to make sure that the Cuban people thrive and can…

With most watching the historic meeting between Raul Castro and Barack Obama, here are five events from the summit that were not widely noticed.

1.  Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Meets with Cuban President Raul Castro – Canadian Media Not Advised

raul y stephen harper in panama 2015Cuban President Raul Castro and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper held a bilateral meeting, however Canadian media reported that they were only informed of the meeting after the fact and only because the Canadian head of government made a passing reference to a meeting between the two leaders. A photo of the meeting was not released by the prime minister’s office, nor were any statements released, suggesting that the prime minister was seeking to deliberately downplay the meeting.

Canada and Cuba have a long-standing political and economic relationship, although Canada supported past efforts by the United States to exclude Cuba from summits.

The U.S.-Cuba rapprochement has returned the Summit of the Americas (SOA) to the way it was before George W. Bush turned it into a forum in which the U.S. was increasingly isolated – a community of vibrant but respectful debate reflecting the varied perspectives of the hemisphere.  The event in Panama this past weekend was dominated by Cuba’s attendance at its first SOA and Presidents Raúl Castro and Barack Obama’s cordial public encounter and hour-long meeting, the first of its kind between the two nations’ leaders in over half a century.  The next step in improving relations will be for Obama to formally announce Cuba’s removal from Washington’s list of “state sponsors of terrorism,” which the State Department reportedly recommended last week.  Regrettably, the leaders did not take advantage of the…

Felix el Gato juega a las escondidas en #Panamá #Pensando Américas

La presencia de Felix Rodrígues Mendigutía “El Gato” en la ciudad de Panamá  durante la Cumbre de las Américas obedeció sin dudas a una bien planeada provocación contra la delegación cubana y una ofensa a todos los latinoamericanos decentes que allí se encontraban, porque a nadie se le ocurriría en serio llevar a semejante ejemplar como representante de alguna cosa que no fuera un cartel de tráfico de estupefacientes, o una organización de asesinos jubilados, o quizás de torturadores, pero nunca como delegado en los foros de la sociedad civil donde se discutían temas como los derechos humanos, gobernabilidad, democracia y participación ciudadana.
