Raul Castro: US and Cuba Ambassadors to Be Named Soon - NYTimes.com

Cuba and the U.S. will name ambassadors to each other's countries after the island is removed from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism later this month, Cuban President Raul Castro said Tuesday. Castro spoke to journalists at Havana's international airport after seeing off visiting French President Francois Hollande.

The United States and Cuba have not had full diplomatic relations since 1961. Currently they have lower-level missions called Interests Sections in each other's countries, under the protection of the Swiss government.
