AFP , Wednesday 1 Jul 2015

US President Barack Obama has proposed that the United States and Cuba reopen embassies in their respective capitals as of July 20, in a letter delivered Wednesday to President Raul Castro, authorities in Havana said.

Reopening of the embassies, which Obama was expected to announce at roughly 11:00 am (1500 GMT), would mark the end of a more than 50-year rupture in relations.
