washington and havana are moving to restore diplomatic relations but normalizing ties is a whole different challenge i feel stuart here at the pentagon where officials are making dead clear that even though the united states and cuba are restoring diplomatic ties the american military base at guantanamo bay remain in u. s. hands for the foreseeable future the cuban government on wednesday put out a statement saying that it wanted to things to normalize ties the united states won a lifting of the economic embargo and to a return of the u. s. military base at guantanamo bay to cuban hands the united states is making very clear that that's not going to happen u. s. secretary of defense ash carter from this podium are standing right now said that there is no intention no anticipation and no plan for that base to return to cuban hands and at the same time you have an agreement has been in place since nineteen o. three with cuba that can't be broken unless is a mutual agreement between cuba and the united states so what this does is it leaves the united states and cuba in kind of a diplomatic tango we're going to have a little bit of a restoration ties but normalize relations if that is the sticking point welcome anytime soon
