Cuba denounces Trump policy changes but is open to dialogue

Yesterday, the US President unveiled plans to switch up predecessor Barack Obama's Cuba policy.

President Donald Trump has a guiding principle for his foreign policy, Sen. The president announced changes to Obama-era Cuba policy, and challenged the Castro government to negotiate a better deal.

But the directive leaves open embassies in Washington and Havana, and cruises and direct flights between the United States and Cuba will be protected under an exception from the prohibition on transactions with military-controlled entities.

President Donald Trump shows a signed executive order on Cuba. Still, Cuba said it is willing to continue "respectful dialogue" with on topics of mutual interest.

Granma, the official organ of Cuba's Communist Party, described Trump's declarations in real-time blog coverage Friday as "a return to imperialist rhetoric and unilateral demands".

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

"Because we know it is best for America to have freedom in our hemisphere, whether in Cuba or Venezuela, and to have a future where the people of each country can live out their own dreams", he said. But, in a shift from Obama's approach, Trump said trade and other penalties would stay in place until a long list of prerequisites was met.

In a statement read out on the evening news, the Communist government said Trump was resorting to "coercive methods of the past" that hurt the Cuban people and prevented economic development but would not weaken the revolution.

"Any limitations on travel hurt Cuban small business owners - restaurants, shops, taxis - that depend on travellers for revenue".

By restricting individual U.S.travel to Cuba, the new policy also risks cutting off a major source of income for Cuba's private business sector, which the policy is meant to support.


"There are so many other opportunities in so many other countries that are easier to deal with government and infrastructure that (hotel companies) will look to those opportunities first", said Zelkowitz, whose firm represents hotel companies such as Solé and Marriott.

One of the major changes in the policy directive is that US travelers making educational people-to-people trips can no longer go to Cuba individually but must travel in groups accompanied by a company representative.

"This is a limitation on what we did, not a reversal of what we did", Rhodes said in an interview.

Without doubt it will impact those in tourism who have benefited from a threefold increase in US visits in the last two years, although it remains unclear how much.

The Obama policy is likely to be revised rather than reversed entirely. He vowed to seek a "much better deal for the Cuban people and for the United States".

Cuba functioned as a virtual USA colony for much of the 20th century, and even reform-minded Cubans are highly sensitive to perceived US infringements on national sovereignty.

Speaking from Miami, Florida, Trump announced changes to President Obama's historic rapprochement with Cuba - fulfilling a promise to the anti-Castro voting bloc he believes helped his campaign clinch the state, but stirring fear among others he could set back business interests and Cuba's potential for a more prosperous private sector.

"The government of Cuba denounces the new measures toughening the embargo" imposed since 1962, according to the statement.

But critics say the opening failed to improve rights.

The Obama administration had restored diplomatic relations with its Cold War foe in December 2014.
