The New Dialogue, Cuba
This chapter assesses Henry Kissinger's two notable failures in his approach to Latin America. He failed to deliver on his promise of a new multilateral relationship with Latin America. Kissinger proved amenable to discussing reforms to the international economic order but abruptly concluded that such hemispheric discussions shifted the balance of power against the United States. He also worked on a plan to break out of the diplomatic stalemate with Fidel Castro's Cuba. He reasoned that if the United States could open a relationship with the People's Republic of China, it could also do so with communist Cuba. Kissinger believed, however, that Cuba had to accept a subordinate position in the global order. Fidel Castro declined to become subservient to the United States.
