July 20 was a historic day for Cuba and the USA. After more than 54 years, embassies re-opened. A diplomatic victory for both peoples.

Is the re-establishment of diplomatic relations the same as normalisation? Kenia Serrano, President of the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the People’s (ICAP) reflect on these questions.
