US: Kerry cancels trip to Cuba amid frictions over human rights | Miami Herald

Secretary of State John F. Kerry has canceled a trip to Cuba two weeks before President Barack Obama visits the communist-ruled nation as diplomats haggle over which Cuban dissidents the president will be allowed to meet.

The back and forth over human rights is another sign of how prickly U.S.-Cuba relations remain despite the restoration of diplomatic ties, and the easing of many travel and trade restrictions, over the past year. It also highlights a potential problem for Obama’s planned March visit, the first by a sitting president in nearly 90 years, to the former Cold War adversary.
