Cuba reiterates willingness to keep talks with the US

PM-1497890531 Trump's Cuba Policy a Lost Opportunity for Agriculture
Tracy Craig | 21 June, 2017, 02:14

Trump on Friday had demanded her return in exchange for any new agreements with Cuba.

The annual United Nations resolution condemning the US embargo is deeply embarrassing, and Latin American countries are particularly sick of a half-century of a failed policy on Cuba - as if this president hasn't already done enough to insult our neighbors with his immigration rhetoric and policies.

The Cuban government responded in a statement that Trump's discourse was laden with "hostile rhetoric" of the past, but the last two years "have demonstrated that the two countries ... can cooperate" and live peacefully in a civilised manner while respecting their differences. "I have continued to press both the Obama and Trump Administrations for the return of Joanne Chesimard, and am pleased that the president today made her return - in clear and absolute terms, as I have insisted - contingent upon any further USA engagement in Cuba".

The new policy also leaves intact most aspects of the Obama Administration's relaxed requirements for travel to Cuba, including the general license authorizing travel for business meetings or professional research. Despite the breadth of the policy's stated goals and the fanfare surrounding its announcement, the policy leaves intact numerous Obama Administration's diplomatic and regulatory changes involving Cuba-for instance, measures facilitating the provision of infrastructure and telecommunications services in Cuba.

Trump's policy restricts this form of travel to the island for individuals. Now, some Americans see Cuba as a tourist destination. There will be no restrictions on Americans bringing Cuba-produced products like rum and cigars out of the country.

"Pope Francis helped our nations to come together in dialogue", Bishop Cantu said.

One of the major problems with President Obama's Cuba policy was that, by near-completely normalizing diplomatic and economic relations with Castro's Communist regime without any human rights concessions, we tarnished America's half-century struggle for freedom for the Cuban people by essentially giving up the fight.

"The Trump administration's plans to prohibit commerce with Cuban businesses owned by the military and intelligence services won support form 43 percent of respondents, while 25 percent opposed and 33 percent said they were not sure".
