John Kerry Set to Raise US Flag Over Embassy in Havana Next Month

Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Havana on Aug. 14, to raise the American flag over the U.S. embassy in Cuba, senior administration officials and diplomatic sources tell CNN.
Kerry's historic trip will mark the first secretary of state to visit to the island since 1945.
The U.S. and Cuba restored diplomatic relations Monday for the first time since 1961, with both countries' Interest Sections officially becoming embassies. The Cuban and American heads of their respective Interest Sections will become charges d'affaires until ambassadors are named.
