John Kerry praises the restoration of diplomatic relations between the US and Cuba as the American flag is once again flown over the US embassy in Havana. Presiding over the flag-raising ceremony on Friday, the US secretary of state says the two countries are no longer ‘prisoners of history’, and calls Cuba a ‘neighbour’ of the United States, rather than an enemy or rival. Following the flag-raising, Kerry had meetings scheduled with the Archbishop of Havana, Cardinal Jaime Lucas Ortega Alamino and the families and staff of the US embassy.
Later on Friday afternoon, he will preside upon the flag raising ceremony at the residence of the US ambassador in Havana.
