(SOUNDBITE, Spanish) - Reynaldo Taladrid, Analyst for Cuban Television “Apparently, one of the most important legacies that Obama will leave is reestablishing bilateral relations with Cuba. What other element could he add? Obama finds it very difficult to make progress in other parts of foreign policy, be it Syria, Iran, he has lots of opposition. With Cuba, he has almost 70 percent approval.” For the Cubans, this visit will open up a new chapter in relations with Washington. Expectations are high. It is hoped that new measures will be announced such as the gradual breakdown of the trade blockade and Cuba-United States rapprochement, above all getting to know the Cuban reality. With this view, Taladrid sees the following among the dangers; the normalization of relations is conditional and if one country imposes upon the other how to manage internal relations and imposes political models, the Cuban government could react defensively.

The new scenario has led to an intense agenda of high-level meetings and over 10 cooperation agreements in air aviation, environmental protection, maritime security, agriculture and health, among others. (Soundbite) Jesus Arboleya, Professor of Intel. Relations "This year-long process has gone relatively well, much faster than expected at times. It also established the foundations of what would be difficult to reverse by whoever wins the U.S. elections in November." Havana’s demand for the complete lifting of the economic and financial blockade is still pending, a major roadblock for the full normalization of the bilateral ties. Repeatedly, President Obama has said that the embargo must be lifted by Congress, as his executive powers are limited and it is now a legislative act. (Soundbite) JESUS ARBOLEYA, Professor of Intel. Relations "The blockade policy as a concept and as a law governing the U.S. policy towards Cuba is an absolute anomaly, not only in the bilateral relations but in the actual conducts of the American foreign policy." Another bristly issue has been the territory occupied by the U.S. as the Guantanamo Naval Base in eastern Cuba, a demand Havana is unwilling to give up, but consistently stated by Washington as not to be negotiated. Regarding the upcoming presidential elections in the U.S., Havana must be prepared for any scenario. However, no matter who wins, the normalization process seems to get continued on an irreversible way. (Soundbite) Jesus Arboleya, Professor of Intel. Relations "If the U.S. changed its policy towards Cuba as Obama said, it is because the old policy failed. The old policy failed, because the variables factors that made it possible ceased to exist. Therefore, to rebuild the old policy will be difficult for anyone who assumes the U.S. presidency."
