Cuba - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (16.06.17)


Q - Do you agree with your American ally that a more restrictive policy toward Cuba is needed in order to change the human rights situation in this country?

A - France welcomed the decisions that were made in 2015 and 2016 to re-establish diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba and to introduce various measures to soften the embargo.

Our dialogue with Cuba takes place within the framework established by the EU-Cuba Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement, which has notably made it possible to establish a high-level political dialogue on human rights.
