The Argentinian pontiff sent “warm congratulations” to the former arch-foes for their “historic decision… to establish diplomatic relations, with the aim of overcoming, in the interest of the citizens of both countries, the difficulties which have marked their recent history”. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper noted his country — which never broke off ties with Cuba — had also played a part in ending the standoff. “Canada supports a future for Cuba that fully embraces the fundamental values of freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law,” Harper said.
