Facebook wants to connect the world and, more specifically, wants to bring the ability to share photos, status updates, and videos to everyone.

And now, with tensions between the United States and Cuba cooling, Facebook seems intent on eventually expanding into the island nation just a few dozen miles off the coast of Florida.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Fusion today that “eventually expanding into Cuba ‘definitely fits within our mission.'”

However, Zuckerberg did not elaborate.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a VentureBeat request for confirmation of his comment.

Zuckerberg was speaking in Panama, where he said he expects to launch, Facebook’s nonprofit that’s geared towards bringing connectivity to developing nations in the “coming weeks and months.” is currently connecting people in eight countries around the world, including Colombia, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Ghana, and India.
