9:06 pm
congressman say that he and others on capitol hill don't want that. is it likely to happen soon on capitol hill? >> it's not likely. politics are complicated and no one needs to be reminded of the political stance of florida although those issues are changing. december 17th of last year announcing the normalization that is culminating over the course of today and into next month, don't look for congress to move to lift that trade embargo any time soon. you mentioned a lot of democrats in the white house certainly want it to happen, a lot of cubans want it to hatch as well. but the foreign minister calls it a blockade. >> thanks mike. melissa chan joins us from havana. melissa.
9:07 pm
>> well, antonio all the pomp and circumstance happened in washington d.c today. certainly a lot of interest here. here in havana though there is a u.s. embassy. the first u.s. embassy in more than 50 years and so there was excitement. although people understand that that ceremony that secretary of state john kerry is going to isn't going to happen for another few weeks. now in terms of normalization i think it's important to point out that 97% of cubans according to one poll that came out earlier this spring, 97% of them support normalization. on this day with the embassies opening, a lot of cubans understand this is mostly symbolic in terms of substantive impact. they are not going to feel any different today than yesterday antonio. >> right so are there any new opportunities available to cubans on the island now that the ties have been normalized? >> well, i think it depends on what cuban you're talking to. those involved in the tourism
9:08 pm
industry have told us they have seen an uptick in the business. that president raul castro made in december of last year, you have got an impact on the economy. as you mentioned earlier it always goes back to the embargo and until the blockade as they have called it is lifted that is a decision that washington d.c. is going to have to make that they are not going to feel feel of transformative change. six months down the line that optimism has been tempered. they understand it is going to take some time, probably years not increments of months, before people will really get a sense of change and what normalization really will mean between the two sides. >> melissa chan thanks. frank calsone the
9:09 pm
organization to free cuba, the organization opposes the castro regime. frank joins us from washington d.c. frank good to have you with us. as a cuban american -- >> thank you for having me. >> -- what was it like to be a few blocks from the white house the cuban anthem being sung and the flag raised? >> as one hears about cuba, once you go behind the headlines you find a different reality. everybody keeps talking as that building became the cuban embassy. that building is the place that cuban be government was representsince jimmy carter. the american embassy has been the place for american diplomats. there have been more where american diplomats in cuba than be canadians or russians for
9:10 pm
more than 20 years. the change today is mostly symbolic. a sign has been changed. and the flags came up. >> right. >> now this is very important -- >> symbolism is important and you know speaker of the house john boehner encapsulated the main argument of those who oppose the thawing of relations by issuing a statement. he says it's appalling to see america's president welcoming and rewarding a regime that has no comparison to american values. if that is the standard then we should have no embassies in left and right wing owner governments around the world. >> that's true but many left and right wing governments throughout world were not caught trying to ship cuban migs on a
9:11 pm
north korean ship to north korea. many other governments that you talk about do not have troops in venezuela, oppressing the venezuelan people. many of those governments around the world have like castro has said, that a new spy base is going to be open in havana, a russian spy base. so this whole idea of many other governments around the world is just a way of arguing. one has to look at the cuban situation and decide. >> all good points. now ranking member of the senate foreign relations committee ben cardon argues that normalization will strengthen the position of the you u.s. to normalize its interests, won't effectively pressure for change on the island something your organization is dedicated to? >> well, first of all there have been relations or the all of these years. this is again a little fairy
9:12 pm
tale that is being brought out. even ronald reagan sent people to cuba to talk to the cuban government. you should talk to another democrat, a former chairman of the be committee of foreign relations, robert menendez, who opposes iran and cuba. >> what is your biggest objection at this point? one of the strongest points of criticism is that the mairch government has ignored human rights and beleaguered cuban dissidents during the negotiations. have the dissidents been brought into the conversation and do you some there is improvement in human rights in cuba? >> there isn't a question of improvement. in the past year and a half, when the president has been discussing with the cuban government, discussion between the president of the united states and a cuban dictator trying to decide the future of cuba. what about the cuban people?
9:13 pm
when you think about the dissidents, it's not something that happened 20 years ago yesterday, again a group of cuban women who go to our church, perhaps 100 of them were dragged down the street because they're relatives of political prisoners. the president remains silent for the most part about many of these things. the president wants to have relations with mr. castro because the president cares about his legacy. but he will have a horrible legacy if he is simply supporting a cuban dictatorship. furthermore the men through latin america is now you can have a military dictator and it's okay with washington. until this president for more than 20 years that was not case. >> i'm sure this is a conversation we will continue to have frank calson, executive director for free cuba, thanks very much.

9:15 pm
>> reporter: but on capitol hill there is anything but broad consensus. members of both parties say they're frustrated the u.n. voted on the deal before they had a chance to weigh in. we are disappointed that the u.n. security council passed a resolution on iran this morning before congress was able to fully review and act on this agreement. house republican ed royce and democrat elliot engle said in a joint statement regardless of this outcome congress will continue to play its role. if iran doesn't live up to its part of the bargain the deal allows all u.n. sanctions to snap back into place. iran's intor toiran's ambassador was defiant accusing israel spreading what he called iran-phobia. >> it considers peace as an
9:16 pm
exenlsexistential threat to itself. >> even as secretary of defense ash carter visited israel to try to sell it, saying israel remains the bedrock of american strategy in the region. >> make no mistake. this deal limits iran but places no limits on the united states, the department of defense or the u.s.-israeli defense relationship. we're moving full speed ahead. >> reporter: the u.n. resolution takes effect in 90 days. that time frame was negotiated specifically to give congress enough time to review it. president obama however says he'll veto any changes congress might make. those changes would require a new u.n. resolution effectively starting a process that has taken years all over again. tony. >> paul beban, thanks. the new president of nigeria goes to the white house. coming up why the fight against

9:25 pm
session is for the two men to establish a relationship between them. one of the things that is very important on the agenda is the security issues in nigeria including is around the region. >> you and i have spoken in the past and you have been fairly optimistic about nigeria's willingness to help out the u.s. but there has been some tension there, even though u.s. has sent military advisors especially after the kidnapping of the girls last year. where does that stand on military cooperation especially against groups as violent as boko haram. >> as i said in the beginning this is a resetting of the relationship and i think that's important to underscore that. president buhari hasn't even been in office for 60 days, he was invited for a visit with president obama. that almost doesn't ever happen. this is a new way to work with
9:26 pm
nigeria not only in the military realm but in trade and investment opportunities. >> the u.s. attitude towards nigeria is similar to the have nigerian attitude torts buhari. they feel he will be have a stronger hand in fighting boko haram? >> when i sat to to witness the inauguration, he had first and foremost strengthening the health system, also has a very big focus on the human quality of life. he understands that nigerians are suffering at all levels and he plans to address this. >> but as you know, they can talk as much as they want about trade, and trying toably nigeria back toto bringnigeria where it should be, but without security they're going
9:27 pm
to have a hard time to do that. and nigeria has recently increased its attacks even though there's -- around boko haram has increased its strikes even though the international community has strengthened against boko haram. >> nigeria is a huge country like saying what's going to happen in the north is like will also happen in the central and southern part of the country. right now it's concentrated in the north and they definitely need to do better job in managing that. over the last two weeks you're absolutely right, boko haram has stepped up and done heinous activities, particularly using young girls as bombers as suicide bombers and definitely that is. but the other part of the country, there are other challenges in health systems and education that they also have to address. >> it is a huge country.
9:28 pm
it is the most populace country in africa. boko haram has bane tacking in chad and cameroon and niger and some of the neighboring countries there so are you optimistic that buhari also with his partners in those country and the international force will be successful from a security standpoint in attacking and defeating boko haram? >> we have an opportunity to put a lot of pressure on boko haram a lot of pressure on where boko haram gets is money and recapturing some of the towns that boko haram has taken not only in nigeria but certainly across borders. so i think we have to look at how we measure success. it may not be 100% defeat but let's try to contain them. >> ambassador robin sanders always great to have thank you.
