Cuban Interest Section in Washington extend services

Havana, Cuba (acn) – The Cuban Interest Section in Washington D.C. has once again extended its services up to June 30 despite the impossibility of finding a bank that takes its operation in the United States.

In a communiqué released on Friday, the section informed that for more than a year now it does not have banking services that guarantee its normal operations and allow full consular services.

This situation still prevails despite the time that has passed by and the current talks between Cuba and the United States to reestablish diplomatic relations.

During the three bilateral talks that have been held since January, the Cuban delegation has insisted in the need to guarantee the normal consular services of the island´s interest section through the operation of a banking institution in the United States.

The Interest Section explains in its communiqué that it will continue to offer its services through travel agencies that have links with the Consular Office and directly in its headquarters in Washington.

The Interest Section adds that they will continue to look for a solution and reiterates that all requests on humanitarian grounds will continue to be processed with priority.

Cuba and the United States will hold talks next week in Washington D.C. on human rights as part of the process of negotiations between the two countries announced on December 17.
