From the US Department of State comes the release below.

With an oil drilling rig on its way to Cuban waters as I write this, I find it interesting that the US State Department puts out a release to announce a Forum and it can’t come to use the word Cuba even once in the release below.

I’ve inserted the word CUBA where it is obvious what they are talking about…
