Cuba's government on Friday criticized US President Donald Trump's "hostile rhetoric" in announcing new restrictions on Washington's ties to the island, but reiterated Havana's willingness to continue "respectful dialogue".
However, it says it will still co-operate with its larger neighbour.
Barack Obama attempted to thaw relations by loosening trade and tourism bans.
Cuban President Raul Castro, responding to Trump's announcement, said: "Any strategy aimed at changing the political, economic and social system in Cuba, whether it seeks to achieve it through pressures and impositions, or by employing subtle methods, will be doomed to failure". Trump foreign policy has only one guiding principle: do the opposite of Obama, no matter the cost.
Trump also demanded the freedom of political prisoners and the return of American Fugitives including the cop killer Joanne Chesimard. and surrendering to political and economic freedom. Can people still travel to the country?
Jonny Lopez De la Cruz, a 77-year-old Bay of Pigs veteran, said he was overcome with "great emotion", adding that the Cuban people deserve freedom after 58 years of suffering.
"I am 100% Republican".

"I have no worries because we have had so many years of embargoes and things". The Cuban tyranny uses the embargo as a pretext to justify that it has failed.

However, with the slight thaw in relations ushered in by Mr Obama, "the past two years has shown that the U.S. and Cuba can co-operate and live together in a civilised manner, respecting differences and working together to benefit both nations and peoples". This will essentially shield USA airlines and cruise-ship companies now serving the island.
Some 285,000 people visited the Caribbean country in 2016, up 74 percent over 2015, with Americans the third-biggest group after Canadians and Cuban expatriates.
The new embassies in Washington and Havana will remain open, and restrictions on goods will stay the same.
And while his policy has the stated aim of helping the country's nascent private sector, it contains a measure that could damage thousands of small-business people who host, feed and transport independent American travelers to Cuba.
