After two decades of relative stability fueled by cheap Venezuelan oil, shortages of food and medicine have once again become a serious daily problem for millions of Cubans. And the US is piling on the pressure
There will be further talks to end to Venezuela's stalemate, negotiators have said. For years, the president's adversaries have been wary of lengthy dialogue, insisting that he has used talks to stall for time.
The Norway-brokered talks aim "to establish a negotiation on the end of the dictatorship," the opposition leader said. Backed by Russia and China, socialist President Nicolas Maduro has refused to step down.
In Cuba putting food on the table has become increasingly difficult, as Venezuela cuts back on oil shipments. Now that Cubans have access to the internet, they are raising their voices on social media.
The US is no longer allowing people-to-people educational travel to Cuba. The Trump administration says that the Caribbean country has a "destabilizing role" in the region.
