It is hoogstonwaarschijnlijk that this year there will be another ambassador will be appointed for Cuba. That says Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Us senate committee for foreign affairs, that the appointment goes.

Wednesday wore president Barack Obama diplomat Jeffrey DeLaurentis as first American ambassador to Cuba, after more than a half-century of diplomatic absence.

According to the president, the commission is informed of the proposed appointment, but there are no official papers submitted, that the process of appointment could be started.

DeLaurentis gives direction to the last year reopened embassy in Havana, but to have him officially to ambassador to be able to appoint Obama has approval from the Republican-dominated Senate. The Republicans are not positive about a close-knit relationship between the US and Cuba.
