WASHINGTON: VIDEO: Cuba’s Flag flies over their Embassy signalling end of post-Cold War era of Us-Cuba Relations ‘

#AceNewsReport – WASHINGTON (AP) July.20: Cuba’s blue, red and white-starred flag was hoisted Monday at the country’s embassy in Washington in a symbolic move signaling the start of a new post-Cold War era in U.S.-Cuba relations.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez presided over the flag-raising ceremony hours after full diplomatic relations with the United States were restored at the stroke of midnight, when an agreement to resume normal ties on July 20 took effect. Earlier, without ceremony, the Cuban flag was hung in the lobby of the State Department alongside those of other countries with which the U.S. has diplomatic ties.

U.S. and Cuban diplomats in Washington and Havana had also noted the upgrade in social media posts.
