OAS to Cuba: Welcome back

Cuba's 47-year suspension from the Organization of American States will be lifted, thanks to an agreement reached Wednesday by foreign ministers assembled in Honduras, Ecuador's Foreign Minister Francisco Falcone told reporters.

The United States had been pressuring the OAS for weeks to condition Cuba's readmission to the hemispheric group on democratic principles and commitment to human rights. Falcone said there will be no such conditions.

''This is a new proposal, it has no conditions -- of any kind,'' Falcone said.
