The recent thawing of US-Cuban relations begs the question, “What does it take to get removed from the “naughty” list?”
For 50 years The United States and Cuba have been on each others’ “naughty” list. In December of 2014 the United States restored diplomatic relations with Cuba. In January of 2015 new travel and trade regulations were enacted that enable U.S. travelers to visit Cuba without first obtaining a government license. In April U.S. President Barak Obama attended the Summit of the Americas in Panama, meeting and visiting with Cuba’s president Raul Castro. More recently Obama stated his desire to remove Cuba from the list of states who sponsor terrorism.
