US, Cuban top diplomats in historic meeting

The US and Cuban foreign ministers have held talks on the eve of the Summit of the Americas in Panama. The countries’ presidents are set to have their own historic encounter at the conference.

US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Cuban counterpart Bruno Rodriguez held a closed-door meeting in Panama City late Thursday in the highest-level talks between the former adversaries in over five decades.

Kerry and Rodriguez smiled for the cameras and shook hands. The last time the chief diplomats from Cuba and the United States met was 1958, one year before Fidel Castro’s revolutionaries came to power. The two met on the sidelines of the Summit of the Americas, which Cuba is participating in for the first time.
