I retroscena delle nuove relazioni tra USA e Cuba 17.12.14

Vox racconta la mediazione diplomatica del governo di Ottawa e del Vaticano, nella figura di papa Francesco, che hanno favorito il riavvicinamento dopo oltre mezzo secolo tra Cuba e Stati Uniti.

The historic deal to begin normalizing relations between the US and Cuba, after 50-plus years of hostility, is being credited primarily to President Obama and Raul Castro, Cuba's current de facto leader and the brother of Fidel. That is with good reason: Obama has been working on this issue throughout much of his presidency and Castro is taking a significant risk by allowing wider Internet access into Cuba as part of the deal.

But there are two actors that quietly played a major role in this: Canada and Pope Francis.
