“On this day [Jan 3, 1961], Manuel Artíme meets in Miami with Marcos Valdes Castilla, the exile representative of the Union Revolucionaria Anticomunista [URA]. The two sign a ‘unity pact’ and the URA offers recognition of the FRD’s [Frente Revolutionario Democratico-Cuban Revolutionary Democratic Front] civilian leadership of the resistance forces, and agrees that Artíme will represent them on the FRD Executive Committee.”
