Russia criticizes US for 'anti-Cuban' approach, says it sides with Cuba

18 Juin 2017

"On behalf of all the men and women of the New Jersey State Police, I am grateful for his recognition and deep concern that Cuba continues to harbor (one of) this country's most wanted cop killers and domestic terrorists", Fuentes said.

The crowd, listening to the president's speech on giant speakers that had been set up in a vacant corner lot a block away from the theater, erupted many times in chants of "Trump, Trump, Trump" and "USA, USA, USA".

Despite the president's claim, the Obama policy will be revised rather than overturned entirely.

Worldwide human rights groups say, however, that reinstating a US policy of isolating the island could make the situation worse by empowering Cuban hardliners.

The new Cuba policy announced by President Donald Trump makes it clear the president will be looking to the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act of 1996 - also known as the Helms-Burton Act - in forging his new take on Cuba. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., tweeted Saturday - do the opposite of what President Barack Obama would have done.

"We will not be silent in the face of communist oppression any longer", Trump said.

"Our policy will seek a much better deal for the Cuban people, and for the United States of America", Trump said.

"We know they have a different view of the world", a Cuban official told CNN.

"Effective immediately, I am cancelling the last administration's completely one-sided deal with Cuba", Mr. Trump said, to cheers at the Manuel Artime Theatre.

However, in practice many recent changes to boost ties to Cuba are to stay as they are.

"President Trump's reversal on Cuba is unfortunate and shortsighted", Perlmutter said in a statement.

Embassies in Havana and Washington will remain open. For more than five decades, a succession of USA presidents - cowed by the right-wing Cuban community in Florida - enforced an economic embargo even though the policy increasingly isolated the US from its neighbors in the hemisphere and its allies across the world.

"For almost six decades, the Cuban people have suffered under communist domination", the president said.

Obama eliminated the tour requirement, allowing tens of thousands of Americans to book solo trips and spend their money with individual bed-and-breakfast owners, restaurants and taxi drivers.

And the U.S. government will police other trips to ensure travellers are pursuing a "full-time schedule of educational exchange activities". The effect of this new policy will be strengthening the revolutionary leadership and seeing that it's right.

The Cuban media called Trump's new foreign policy on Cuba "regrettable" and "archaic". "I do think you're likely to see a fewer number of flights and higher fares", said Andrew Keller, a partner at Hogan Lovells focusing on worldwide trade and investment.

The two major changes unveiled in Trump's new policy are preventing United States companies from doing business with the #Cuban Military and enforcing who can travel to Cuba.

Some travelers said they understood why Trump did not want US dollars going to the Cuban military but others said it would hurt Cubans who benefited from the recent tourism boom, using generous American tips to support their families.

Trump's declaration in a crowded, sweltering auditorium was a direct rebuke to Obama, for whom the diplomatic opening with Cuba was a central accomplishment of his presidency.

Obama had pushed for expanding commerce and travel between the two countries.

"A Cuban small businessman should not be obliged to buy from the only wholesaler that exists now, which is the state", he said.

This will nearly certainly make all American travel to the island a complicated maze of avoiding payments to military-linked monopolies ranging from hotels to gas stations to convenience stores. Ensconced in think tanks in Washington and NY, or in the private sector on both coasts, the Obama alumni network has become a diaspora of the disappointed as Trump tries to make good on his promises to upend much of what they had worked to accomplish. "We're the ones who are hurt". The problems with this argument are twofold - it both exaggerates and underplays the effects of USA engagement in Cuba.

This process culminated in significant economic opportunities for both the USA and Cuba.

"We will not lift sanctions on the Cuban regime until all political prisoners are free, freedoms of assembly and expression are respected, all political parties are legalized and free and internationally supervised elections are scheduled", Trump demanded.

Aug 2016: U.S. commercial flight arrives in Cuba for the first time in more than half a century. He said he was disappointed by Trump's move, although he understood the principle.

While tourism to Cuba is banned by USA law, the Obama administration had been allowing people to travel to Cuba as part of "people to people" educational trips for visitors, a popular classification that a White House official said was "ripe for abuse" by those looking for beach vacations.

'The Government of Cuba denounces the new measures of hardening the blockade which are doomed to fail as it has been proven in the past', the official statement asserts.

Castro also said that "the USA is not in a position to give us lessons".

It's not hard in the scruffy streets of Little Havana, where old men play dominos in parks between Cuban diners and up-and-coming jazz bars, to find hardliners who spit on the "communist Obama" and his supposed sell-out to Castro.
