Secretary Kerry To Visit Cuba This Month.... Trying To "Close The Deal"

The Honorable John Kerry, United States Secretary of State, will visit the Republic of Cuba in October 2016, probably 12 October 2016 to 14 October 2016.

Mrs. Josefina de la Caridad Vidal Ferreiro, the Director General (since 2013) of the Department of the United States at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba, reported that from October 2016 through December 2016 seven high-level visits by both officials of the government of the Republic of Cuba and delegations from the United States were scheduled to be held in Washington, DC, and in Havana.  The United States Department of State has not mentioned the number of visits.

A goal will be to discuss how to implement as many of the Obama Administration initiatives as possible by 20 January 2017... explain the new regulations that are expected to be announced, and attempt to conclude agreements relating to, among other topics, certified claims.

Secretary Kerry may establish the foundation for a visit by Vice President Joseph Biden.
