EU's Mogherini to make first visit to Cuba to spur normalisation

EU foreign affairs head Federica Mogherini speaks with journalists after a working meeting at the Foreign Affairs Ministry in Paris on March 7, 2015EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini is to visit Cuba later this month in a bid to spur talks aimed at normalising ties with the Communist-led island state, the first such trip by a top EU diplomat. The planned visit appears to mark a further thaw in relations between Cuba and the West, especially after the dramatic rapprochement between Havana and Washington in the last few months. Mogherini will meet Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on the March 23-24 visit to Havana which “comes at a crucial time” for negotiations between the two sides, her office said in a statement Saturday. “Cuba is facing a very interesting period and the European Union is keen to see how we can take the relationship forward with strong momentum,” Mogherini said.
