Miami Herald- Frances Robles

Plans to send an American post-hurricane assessment team to Cuba have been scrapped after the two sides couldn't agree on what the visitors would do upon arrival in Havana.

After agreeing to a visit by three disaster experts, Cuba wanted the Americans to partake in discussions about regional disaster recovery. The Americans wanted to review Cuba's needs after Hurricane Wilma flooded Havana and the western province, Pinar del Río.

Cuba, the U.S. State Department said, wanted the experts to sit and watch presentations.
