The administration of Joe Biden plans to review the U.S. policy towards Cuba, announced the White House, after four years in which former President Donald Trump intensified hostility and the blockade against the island.
According to the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, the policies of the Trump administration towards the Caribbean nation will soon be reviewed, according to Prensa Latina.
The magnate former president, since January 2017 began an escalation against the island, which reached the figure of more than 240 measures, unprecedented, which interested every economic and social sector of the Greater of the Antilles, which intensified the unjust and illegal economic, commercial and financial blockade, coinciding with the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Dictatorial measures against Cuba
Those orders from the ruler of the empire prohibited cruise ship travel; regular and charter flights to the entire country, with the exception of Havana; the sending of remittances through the Cuban firms Fincimex and American International Services; the import of products from any country containing more than 10% of U.S. components, and the entry into the U.S. of Cuban rum and tobacco. He added to his dictatorial measures the persecution of banking operations and included more than 200 companies in a list he called Cuban Entities Restricted by the State Department.
In order for the current Administration to inherit such fascist behavior and in order to torpedo any revision of its policy, only a week after leaving the White House chair, last January 11, it included, as always, unilaterally, Cuba on the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. Such an absurd and alienated position has been widely and forcefully rejected at the international level.
