The Cuban and US foreign ministers held a historic meeting in Panama late Thursday, the highest-level encounter between the Cold War-era foes in decades ahead of a historic summit. It was the first time that the chief diplomats from the two nations met since 1958, one year before Fidel Castro’s revolutionary guerrillas came to power.
