Latin diplomacy

Mexico’s ambassador in Havana tells AP that he’s optimistic that relations with Cuba will normalize this year, ending the hangover that lingered from the body-blows exchanged by Fidel and Fox a few years ago. An exchange of foreign minister visits is expected, the ambassador says, and nobody will interfere in anybody else’s internal affairs.

And an unfinished part of Guatemala’s agenda in the recent vice presidential visit to Cuba was to get Cuba to agree to establish a “school of rural medicine” in Totonicapán. The Guatemalan press reports that Cuba is reviewing a Guatemalan proposal, and Vice President Espada hopes for an agreement within months.
