Cuba, Spain Renew Diplomatic Relations

Cuba says it has restored formal relations with Spain, a year after the European Union imposed diplomatic sanctions on the communist island.

Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque announced the decision Thursday, shortly before a meeting in Havana with new Spanish Ambassador Carlos Zaldivar.

The European Union imposed the sanctions after Cuba's 2003 detainment of 75 dissidents, and the execution of three men who tried to hijack a ferry to the United States.

No additional information has been given by either government.
