"As someone who has observed the evolution of relations between the United States and Cuba for almost 50 years, I find the situation between our two countries disconcerting, tragic and frankly exasperating", Leahy stated.
The legislator pointed out that all these years of sanctions and threats did not achieve Washington's expected results. He added that a minority had approved the policy imposed by the Biden administration with opposed interests to good bilateral relations.
Therefore he mentions his concern regarding Cuba's permanence on the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, given the request for a review on this issue, due to the reclassification of Cuba during the Trump administration period (2017-2021).
As happened with Trump's attempted coups in Venezuela, anti Cuban sectors led President Biden to failed interference, destabilization and disinformation operations.
They can't hide that those who serve interests of government so aggressive to us have no popular support in #Cuba.
