    HAVANA (AP) —    Cuba and the United States have signed an accord on preventing and cleaning up oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida Straits.

    Monday’s agreement is another step in the Obama Administration’s efforts to solidify its legacy of normalization with Cuba before a Republican administration takes over.

    The agreement calls on both countries to establish a bilateral operations plan in the event of a spill or other pollution in waters they share.
