In the wake of the newly announced thaw in U.S.-Cuba relations, President Barack Obama will not rule out a future visit to the island nation.
On Wednesday, BloombergPolitics reported that the administration confirmed a high-level American delegation would soon head to Cuba.
“I certainly wouldn’t rule out a presidential visit, but I have nothing to announce at this point,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters.
The U.S. will re-establish its Havana embassy, with American officials traveling to Cuba for advancing “shared interests,” such as immigration, counterterrorism, and the fight against drug trafficking.
Americans will also be allowed to travel to Cuba.
Presidents regularly go to places where the U.S. disagrees with the county’s policies. Earnest cited Obama’s recent trips to China and Myanmar.
With more Americans heading to Cuba, Earnest said Obama would probably not turn down an opportunity to visit.
“They have a beautiful climate,” he added, “and a lot of fun things to do.”
