EIGHTEENTH DIPLOMATIC STUDIES ROUNDTABLE: "DIPLOMATIC COORDINATION: THE MANAGEMENT OF U.S. RELATIONS WITH CUBA" WITH PETER M. BRENNAN

Relations between the United States of America and the Republic of Cuba hardly conform to the standard pattern of "bilateral" relations between countries.  Inside Cuba itself, the affairs of the United States are handled by the embassy-like "U.S. Interests Section," formally though not physically a part of the Embassy of Switzerland.  Under the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, the Swiss government serves as the "protecting power" for the United States and its interests in Cuba.
