US invites Cuban medical workers to tour Navy hospital ship docked in Haiti


WASHINGTON — The United States is inviting five Cuban medical workers and Cuba's ambassador in Haiti to tour the U.S. Navy hospital ship Comfort while it is docked in Haiti on Friday.

The White House says the invitation is in keeping with U.S. moves to normalize relations with Cuba.

National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said Thursday the U.S. and Cuba share a common interest in promoting the health and welfare of the Haitian people.

He says the visit to the Comfort will give U.S. and Cuban representatives an opportunity to discuss "opportunities for future cooperation."
