On March 14, an American Security Project-led delegation departed on a four day fact-finding trip to Havana, Cuba. The delegation included retired flag officers from across the services and was recognized by the Cuban government as a historic continuation of US-Cuba relations.

The itinerary included meetings with senior officials from across the Cuban government; the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Trade and Investment, the Ministry of Agriculture, and the Ministry of Energy. Conversations were wide ranging across areas of mutual interest to both Cuba and the United States. Of particular focus were several discrete areas already included in the ASP ‘Pathways’ Program:

  • Cooperating on environmental protection
  • Building a strong and resilient energy system
  • Partnership in confronting regional challenges in the Caribbean like drug trafficking and organized crime
  • Supporting US foreign direct investment into Cuba
  • Military to military engagement and future security cooperation

 

Join members of the delegation on Tuesday, April 25th for an on-the-record briefing on the trip and discussion on how continued engagement with Cuba furthers US national security interests.
