Russia says Trump is using 'Cold War rhetoric' on Cuba

Cuba blasts Trump's decision to revamp Obama-era deal

The lengthy statement went on to strike a conciliatory tone, saying Cuba wants to continue negotiations with the US on a variety of subjects.

Trump announced Friday he was reversing numerous policies enacted by former President Barack Obama with the Caribbean nation.

United States businesses and citizens will be excluded from doing business with any company controlled by the Cuban Armed Forces (FAR) or its intelligence or security services.

However, the United States embassy in Havana will remain open and commercial flights from the U.S. started a year ago will continue.

Mr Trump had promised fringe anti-communist Cuban exiles that he would take a hard line - a position that Cuba said is opposed by the wider Cuban community in the U.S. and the population as a whole. "Expanding U.S. commercial interests and introducing U.S. investment in Cuba should be coupled with the Cuban government's concrete and irreversible steps to ensure the democratic rights and freedoms of its people".

Moran backs legislation to restore trade with Cuba in addition to supporting Flake's legislation.

FILE - In this Friday, June 16, 2017, file photo President Donald Trump speaks about Cuba policy in Miami.

To this day, Cuba is ruled by the same people who killed tens of thousands of their own citizens, who sought to spread their repressive and failed ideology throughout our hemisphere and who once tried to host enemy nuclear weapons 90 miles from our shores, Trump said.

Chesimard was convicted in 1977 in the death of Trooper Werner Foerster. Two years after her 1977 conviction as an accomplice Foerster's murder, Chessimard escaped from prison and fled to Cuba, where she lives under name Assata Shakur. Fidel Castro granted her asylum and she has been living under the name Assata Shakur.

We asked Northeastern professor Jose Buscaglia, a Caribbean scholar who played a key role in establishing the university's partnerships in Cuba, to explain how Trump's changes might impact the on-again, off-again relationship between the two nations.

Saying Washington's recent "haughty" remarks against Cuba were reminiscent of the rhetoric during the Cold War, the Kremlin strongly criticized Trump's decision to rollback his predecessor Barack Obama's policies towards Cuba. Travel by Americans to Cuba will still be possible, but with new restrictions that require USA travelers do business with individual Cubans and not their military.

Trump is also calling for the legalization of all political parties, and free and internationally supervised elections.

Members of Cuba's small but vibrant independent civil society say they fear the new policy will do more harm than good. They are in such danger the way they have to come to this country.

President Donald Trump's announcement of a tougher line toward Cuba has delighted hardliners on the island, who say it reveals Washington's long-held aim of imposing its will on Cuba.

Trump announced on Friday new restrictions on Americans' travel to Cuba and USA business with the Cuban military, a step to tighten the US policy toward the neighboring country. In fact, President Trump negotiated an arms deal with prominent human rights abuser Saudi Arabia valued at $100 billion.

The Castro government is certain to reject Trump's list of demands, which includes releasing political prisoners, halting what the USA says is abuse of dissidents and allowing greater freedom of expression.

The ban on tourism will be upheld until that time and American companies will be barred from engaging in financial transitions with Cuba's military-operated businesses, he said. The bill has 54 co-sponsors.

The president tweeted while en route to Miami, where he'll announce his plans for halting the flow of US cash to Cuba's military and security services while maintaining diplomatic relations.

Mr. Trump's obsolete stance on Cuba is something that belongs to the annals of history, not a contemporary policy position.

Declaring Obama's pact with Castro a "completely one-sided deal", Trump said he was cancelling it.
