The historic talks between Cuba and the United States began in January of 2015. People in both the US and Cuba reacted to the announcements of the talks with new optimism and hope.
“Two days of talks between the United States and Cuba aimed at ending more than 50 years of Cold War-era hostility begin Wednesday in Havana.
The meetings are taking place one month after President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro announced, on Dec. 17, the two countries were prepared to reestablish formal diplomatic relations.
Wednesday’s opening round will focus on immigration, especially Washington’s long-standing policy of allowing Cubans to stay in the United States once they step foot on American soil.”
