US Embassy In Havana Invites (Again) Officials From Government Of Cuba To 4th Of July Party; What About FAR?

The United States Department of State extended invitations to representatives of the government of the Republic of Cuba to attend the annual 4th of July gathering at the Ambassador's Residence in the city of Havana, Republic of Cuba.

The United States Department of State has extended this invitation for many years, preceding, during and subsequent to the Obama Administration's re-establishment of diplomatic relations on 20 July 2015.

However, the United States Department of State will not confirm if representatives of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of the Republic of Cuba (FAR) were invited to the gathering this year.

The Trump Administration has announced plans to restrict commercial engagement with FAR-controlled entities.
