28 September 2016 Current Affairs: The United States has appointed its first Ambassador Jeffrey DeLaurentis to Cuba in 55 on 27 September 2016. The two countries broke off relations in 1961 after the communist revolution.
He was appointed to the post by President Barack Obama, who said that it was a step towards a more normal and productive relationship. He said that there was no better qualified public servant.
But this appointment will need an approval from the Republican-led Senate, which has opposed to his dealings with the communist island.
The new ambassador DeLaurentis had been working at the new US embassy in Havana, which opened since 2014. He served in Havana during the transition period between the two nations which includes re-opening of embassies in Washington and Havana. This was followed by resuming travel and trade relations on a limited basis.
