House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will be joining President Barack Obama on his historic trip to Cuba.

The California Democrat will be part of a delegation of House and Senate members who will be traveling to the country next week. It will mark the first time a sitting president has set foot in Cuba in more than 80 years.

Republicans and Democrats will be making the trip, including Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. More than a dozen House members will join Obama and Pelosi on the trip, according to congressional aides and lawmakers.

In December 2014, the United States and Cuba reopened diplomatic channels as the administration pressed to move past a Cold War standoff with the communist nation.
