Cuba rejects new USA policy, saying pressure will not work

He described fugitives such as Joanne Chesimard, a black militant convicted of the murder of a New Jersey state trooper, as political refugees who had received asylum from the Cuban government and would not be returned because the USA has no "legal or moral basis" to demand their return. As the majority of USA sanctions against Cuba are statutorily required by the Helms-Burton Act, Cuban Democracy Act and other legislation, Congressional approval would be required to lift the embargo on Cuba or further ease sanctions in any substantive way beyond the measures implemented under the Obama Administration.

The Trump administration announced it is planning to hold President Raúl Castro's notoriously repressive regime to higher human rights standards before allowing further dialogue regarding opening the island to normalized USA relations.

CNN characterized the changes as only partial.

"In all, though, it seems that Trump's announcement in Miami does not go quite as far as some had thought possible because embassies in the countries will remain open and diplomatic relations will continue", Ward said. Paul Johnson of the U.S. Agriculture Coalition for Cuba, says agriculture will largely not have to worry about that.

President Trump announced just before the weekend that he will reinstate certain travel and commercial restrictions related to Cuba that had been eased under the Obama Administration.

Alliance leader Naomi Long also said it is "vital we do not let this develop into a pattern of revenge attacks". The attack on London Bridge killed seven people and injured 48.

"Let's give it a little time, but as the President says on a variety of subjects, let's not project what we're going to do and make sure that we see how things - and reserve the right to go forward", he said.

"The Cuban government must be urged to respect religious freedoms and to extend greater social, political and economic rights to all Cubans", he said.

Bishop Cantu's statement said: "The fruits of investment in Cuba should benefit individuals and families, and not the security forces". "It is important to continue to promote dialogue and encounter between our neighboring nations and peoples", said a statement, also released on 19 June, from Bishop Oscar Cantu of Las Cruces, New Mexico, chairman of the United States bishops' Committee on International Justice and Peace.

"It is important to continue to promote dialogue and encounter between our neighboring nations and peoples", Bishop Cantu said. Bishop Cantu is about to depart for a pastoral visit to Cuba at the invitation of the Cuban bishops.
