HAVANA, Cuba – The United States and Cuba have closed two days of historic talks in Havana with some progress being made after more than a half-century of estrangement. There are still disagreements over human rights, including freedoms of expression.
WINK News sent a team of reporters to Havana for the diplomatic talks and to talk to Cubans and Americans on the island nation.
Among those most optimistic about the changes coming to Cuba are young Cubans. WINK News talked with Oscar Perez Jr., a young Cuban musician. “Younger people always are expecting change, we need this I think.”
They believe the diplomatic talks will lead to new opportunities for them…after decades of the same leadership. Perez says, “I think it’s good for both nations.”
