|Cuban Interests Section|
On December 6, 2013, M & T Bank informed the Cuban Interests Section about its decision to extend the deadline for permanently closing the accounts of the Cuban missions in the United States until March 1st, 2014, specifying that it will continue receiving deposits from consular services until February 17, 2014.
The Cuban Interests Section would like to inform that consular services will be immediately resumed on a temporary basis up to February 17, 2014.
The Cuban Interests Section in Washington continues its efforts to find a new bank to handle its bank accounts and, to the extent that this is achieved, it would be able to provide consular services on a regular basis.
The Cuban Interests Section regrets any inconvenience the suspension of consular services last November 26 may have caused Cuban and American citizens and will provide timely information on future developments regarding this matter.
