Cuba's blue, red and white-starred flag is set to fly outside the country's diplomatic mission in the U.S. for the first time since the countries severed ties in 1961 .While no formal ceremony is planned Monday for the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, it too will become a full-fledged embassy just after midnight as the Cold War foes formally enter a new era of engagement despite what remains a deep ideological gulf.The U.S. government will be represented by Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta Jacobson, who led U.S. negotiators in six months of talks leading to the July 1 announcement that embassies would reopen, and Jeffrey DeLaurentis, the U.S. Interests Section chief in Havana who will now become charge d'affaires.Rodriguez is scheduled to meet later in the day with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. Machin also said many Americans who have worked to cultivate U.S.-Cuba ties over the years have been invited.
