Cuban Foreign Ministry commented on the removal of a number of restrictions by the United States

Cuba Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla. File photoMEXICO CITY, May 17.The US State Department's statement on “measures to further support the Cuban people” is a limited step in the right direction, which nevertheless confirms the goals and instruments of the failed US policy towards the island, said the head of Cuban diplomacy Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla. “The statement of the US government is limited “a step in the right direction. This decision does not reverse the blockade, the false listing of countries sponsoring terrorism, nor most of (former US President Donald) Trump's coercive maximum pressure measures that still affect the Cuban people,” Rodriguez tweeted. State Department spokesman Ned Price said earlier that the United States is increasing support for Cubans by resuming a program that includes expanding visa and consular services, lifting a number of restrictions on money transfers, and making it easier for family members to visit the United States.According to the Cuban diplomat, the content of the statement confirms that no purpose , nor the main tools of the failed US policy against Cuba have changed. “To know the real scope of this statement, we must wait for the publication of the rules that will determine its application,” added Rodríguez Parrilla. In early May, the US Embassy in Havana reported that after a break resumed the processing of immigrant visa applications for Cuban citizens within a few years. During this period, citizens of the island nation who wished to migrate to the United States were forced to personally apply to submit documents to the American missions in Colombia and Guyana. The closure of the embassy and the withdrawal of a significant part of US diplomats from Cuba occurred in December 2018 under President Donald Trump. He then referred to the health incidents of the diplomatic staff, which were called “Havana Syndrome”.
