US Not Surprised by Cuba's Venezuela Stand, But What of 25 Mile Rule?

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, March 13 -- When Cuba came out in strong defense of Venezuela after US President Obama's executive order, the US was disappointed but not surprised, a senior State Department official told reporters on March 13.

  The official predicted neither Cuba's statement or the upcoming UNASUR meeting to be held March 14 in Ecuador would impact the process between the US and Cuba, including talks next week in Havana.

  But, Inner City Press wonders from the UN, what of the US' requirement that Cuban diplomats -- and even Cuban UN staff members -- must stay without 25 miles of Columbus Circle in Manhattan?

  Will that restrictions, which is contrary to the Host Country Agreement between the US and UN and, it seems, the Vienna Conventions, be removed? If so, when in this process?

   Currently in charge of the US' “interest section” is Jeffrey Delaurentis, formerly with the US Mission to the UN. What does he say about the 25 mile restriction? And how might he fare in a nomination process in the US Senate? Watch this site.
