The United States Postal Service has restored direct postal mail with the country of Cuba, The White House announced through its Facebook page on March 17th.
This move is another one of President Barack Obama’s efforts to improve relations with Cuba. On March 20, President Obama will travel to the Caribbean island. A U.S. President has not visited the nation in over 90 years.
From The White House Blog:
“… we’ve restored non-stop flights between our two countries. We’ve helped facilitate more people-to-people interaction and commercial enterprise. We’ve allowed U.S. dollars to be used in more financial transactions with Cuba. And today, we’re restoring direct mail for the first time in 50 years.” (Read full blog post)
