Russia slams Trump's 'Cold War' policy on Cuba

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 02:13

A colorful Cuban streetscape.

Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement Sunday Trump is: 'returning us to the forgotten rhetoric of the Cold War'. At the very least, we should not restrict Americans' freedom to travel unless there is strong evidence that doing so really will have a substantial beneficial effect on human rights in Cuba. He clamped down on some commerce and travel but left intact many new avenues President Barack Obama had opened. However, Trump's tightening of travel restrictions is likely to halt that growth.

In a statement read out on the evening news on Friday, the Cuban government reiterated its willingness to "continue the respectful dialog and cooperation on matters of mutual interest", with the United States.

In his last month in office, Obama also suspended a section of the Helms-Burton Act that allows former owners of commercial properties expropriated by Cuba to sue foreign companies trafficking in those confiscated holdings.

Small group culinary tour operator Access Trips also expressed disappointment.

Some American tourists were disappointed at President Trump's decision to reinstate the long-standing travel ban with Cuba as well.

President Trump demanded the Cuban government return American fugitives, singling out one of New Jersey's most notorious criminals, Joanne Chesimard.

"Access Trips' tours will operate as planned, with our eight-day immersive culinary tours as well as our five-day weekend trips to Havana both created to help our guests explore Cuban culture through its cuisine".

He admits he was anxious before President Trump's announcement, but wasn't too disappointed with what he heard.

In keeping with his campaign to undo everything done by the Obama administration, President Trump went to Miami on Friday to announce a tough new policy toward Cuba.


Many government officials and their supporters saw the Obama policy as an attempt to lull Cuba into complacency and undermine the foundations of a communist system based in part of near-total control of virtually every aspect of society, from animal-rights groups to the film industry. A similar group of Senate Republicans wrote to Tillerson and national security adviser H.R. McMaster, citing the entrepreneurial and national security benefits of continued engagement. "President Trump's success is America's success ... of course I want the president to be successful".

And he is not closing down the American embassy Obama opened in Havana - a pillar of the deal Trump claimed was so frightful for the US. They asserted that Trump was sacrificing the Cuban people's hopes for more freedom, which Obama had revived, on the altar of hard-line anti-Castro ideology. According to CNN, the President's changes would include prohibiting financial transactions incidental to travel with the Cuban government-run GAESA.

Emmer, who's been one of Trump's most enthusiastic backers on Capitol Hill, echoed Crawford's criticism, saying Trump's Cuba directive appears to be in violation of his promise to keep the American homeland safe.

Record remittances from the U.S.to Cuba are opening up other new economic opportunities for ordinary citizens.

"We will continue the fight, until the end".

Friday's announcement was met with chagrin by several members of Congress, including Arizona Sen. Now, those who do travel into the country will be subjected to stringent review. A total of 191 countries voted in favor.

Washington, D.C. Rep. Barbara Lee echoed those thoughts in her own statement.

Trump said his actions bypassed the military and the government to help the Cuban people form businesses and pursue much better lives.

The embargo, which Cubans call a blockade, has been condemned by the global community every year for causing suffering among Cuban people, especially women and children. But he will rollback the policy of greater engagement between the USA and Cuba in other ways.
