The U.S. will have their deputy national security adviser, Benjamin J. Rhodes attend Fidel Castro’s funeral.  Jeffrey DeLaurentis, a top American diplomat in Cuba will also be present to represent the United States. This was confirmed by White House press secretary, Josh Earnest.

The organization chose that the relationship between the two nations remained “very confused,” Earnest said. “There are numerous parts of the U.S. – Cuba relationship that were described by a ton of contention and turmoil, not simply amid the Castro administration.” Earnest said the organization kept on having huge worries about the Cuban government, including its poor security of essential human rights.

“Along these lines, we trust this was a proper route for the United States to demonstrate our dedication to a progressing future-situated association with the Cuban individuals,” Earnest said. In spite of the fact that he is not a representative, Rhodes was the focal White House questioner amid transactions with the Cuban government over the late opening of relations between the two nations, and he was booked to be in Cuba this week for more gatherings at any rate, Earnest said.

Obama has tried to strike a troublesome harmony between closure of the nations’ hostility and recognizing the island government’s flaws. He has seen the many years of American endeavors to undermine and even topple Cuba’s administration as being unsuccessful as well as hurtful to the United States’ picture in the locale.

By diminishing the temperature of the dialect against Cuba, Obama trusts that the world will probably concentrate more all alone challenges on monetary change and human rights, Earnest said. In any case, Republicans were strongly basic on Saturday, the day after Castro’s demise, of a White House proclamation that prominent that it was an event for Americans to “extend a hand of kinship to the Cuban individuals” while doing little to chastise the previous pioneer’s record of fierceness.
