The new U .
Embassy in Havana is one of the first new U, S. embassies to open since the Cuban Revolution.
Cuban President Raul Castro announced the opening of the embassy on June 14, saying it will be the first U. S. Embassy to open in the country since the revolution that ended Fidel Castro’s rule in 1959.
The new embassy will be housed in the renovated former St. Augustine Hotel, which was the main residence of the Cuban government until a 2010 earthquake and subsequent collapse of the historic structure left it abandoned.
The building was rebuilt as a temporary headquarters for the Cuban Embassy, but a new embassy building was constructed in the historic center.
During the last week of June, the U.s.
Embassy’s official opening ceremony took place in the old St. Elizabeth Cathedral, which is now known as the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba.
The new embassy is located on a 4,000-acre island of 2.8 million square miles (9,000 square kilometers), which is one-fifth of the U .s. territory of Puerto Rico.
It was built by the state of Florida.
It was also the first American embassy to open under the Trump administration.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly called for an end to U. s. support for the Castro regime and criticized U. nascar driver and current Cuban dictator, Raúl Castro, for allowing U. states and other countries to travel to the island.
In March, the president said he was open to a free trade agreement with Cuba.
