The United States and Cuba continue to ease diplomatic and economic relations ahead of President Barack Obama’s upcoming trip to Havana next week. Obama will become the first sitting U.S. president to visit Cuba in 88 years. On Wednesday, direct postal service between the two countries resumed after a half-century. On Thursday, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez said Cuba would remove a 10 percent tax on U.S. cash dollars as soon as it verifies that the United States has lifted currency restrictions against Cuba.
