S. Korea eyes building liaison office in Cuba

(MENAFN) During her visit to Havana, South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha tackled the idea of establishing a liaison office between Korea and Cuba, the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Thursday.

"Kang brought up a subject of opening a liaison office between the two countries as part of efforts to normalize relations with Cuba," said a ministry official.

"Cuban officials have not clearly responded to the offer yet," he added.

Cuba is emerging blinking into the daylight after decades of a U.S. blockade that prevented Korea from ever establishing diplomatic relations with the island country.

Making her second visit for a Korean foreign minister to Cuba, Kang was in Havana for two days to attend a meeting of the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean.
