Cuba, U.S. to discuss detente in wake of Trump election

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump speaks to members of the news media in the main lobby at Trump Tower in New YorkHAVANA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Cuba and the United States will draw up a roadmap for deepening their detente, the Cuban government said on Tuesday, in a first meeting since the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president and the death of Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro. Wednesday's fifth U.S.-Cuban bilateral commission comes at a time of increased uncertainty about the future of U.S.-Cuban relations given Trump's promise to end the detente if Cuba did not offer a better "deal." The administration of outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama has pressed American companies to complete additional business deals in Cuba to help further cement the president’s policy by the time Trump takes office on January 20.
