Cuban Interests Section

The Cuban Interests Section in Washington, DC is the de facto diplomatic mission of the Republic of Cuba to the United States. It is located at 2630 16th Street Northwest, Washington, D.C. in the Adams Morgan neighborhood.
The Cuban Interests Section and its counterpart, the United States Interests Section of the Embassy of Switzerland in Havana, Cuba or USINT Havana (the State Department telegraphic address) are formally sections of the respective Embassies of Switzerland, although they operate independently of the Swiss in virtually all but protocol respects. Although diplomatic relations have been restored between the two countries, they do not have embassies in each others countries at the moment, and their respective Interests Sections function as de facto embassies.
