In this quiet work that led to the release of prisoners held by both countries, Cardinal Jaime Ortega Alamino, archbishop of Havana, has been the protagonist. In this interview held in Rome during the last consistory, Ortega details the steps that led to the end of the embargo and reveals the conversation between Barack Obama and Francisco about Cuba. “The Pope told him a phrase of great importance: ‘Look, this is not only good for the people of Cuba, who have suffered a lot, but for his Government and for his person, for his country’s policy with Latin America. Latin America is united and rejects the blockade. Your country’s politics passes through Latin America. “If there is no solution, you will continue to be very distant from Latin America.” read
