Sitting with the Socialists is a point on the foreign policy agenda of Joe Biden, who, as President of the United States, is now considering a “new path” with Cuba. He no longer conceals his intentions and it looks like a picture with the island’s president Miguel Diaz-Canel or a tribute between them is imminent.
The German agency quoted Biden spokeswoman Jane Psaki as saying that the Democrat is “reviewing” the 190 measures taken by Donald Trump against Havana. German wave.
The Washington Office for Latin American Affairs (WOLA) and the Center for Democracy in the Americas (CDA) recommended Biden in a report titled The United States and Cuba: A New Policy of Engagement ‘ Inviting Diaz-Canel to the Summit of the Americas, to be hosted by the United States in late 2021, as part of the principle ofPositive participation»(Positive Engagement) reveals the agency France 24
But the Republican strategist Matt Makofiac It does not bode well for him, because “you cannot be bipartisan with one hand and let go with the other hand and we hope the Republicans will not realize that,” according to Reason.
Review with our sponsors
The United Nations has already agreed with Biden’s intentions. The commission’s secretary general, António Guterres, opposes rehabilitation Cuba As a state sponsor of terrorism decided by the Donald Trump administration and trusts that the Democrat cancels the measure, he reveals Trading.
This position has already been demonstrated by the Permanent Representative of Cuba to the United Nations, Pedro Pedroso, who learned at a meeting of Guterres’ vision through his spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, this week.
The conversation focused on questioning Trump’s decision to include Al Jazeera on the list after his predecessor Barack Obama thawed relations in 2015 with withdrawing from that and because he did so only nine days after his term expired, the mediator confirms. Thus the United Nations mediates for the dictatorship.
Others are in chess
In addition to the UN petition, Biden has two opposing messages on the table. One is from John S. Kavulich, a pro-Cuban activist in the United States, who “secretly promised him gold and moors if the embargo and sanctions imposed by Trump were lifted. At the same time, he is proposing 15 names of the largest number of financial or American political figures to act as ambassadors in Cuba, And who should be more negotiators than diplomats, says analyst Carlos Alberto Montaner Bookcases.
The other letter was suggested by William M. LeoGrande (American University(And Peter Cornblue)National Security Archive), Two members loyal to Castro who warned Biden that “policy toward Cuba,” giving and giving “is doomed to failure.. What he means is that he forgot to ask the Cuban government to abandon Maduro or to moderate its foreign policy, because the issue of Cuban sovereignty cannot even be touched by a rose petal, as Montaner asserts, who believes that “you must be a deep stupid to believe that this system will one day redeem it. The Cuban people. “
But the democratic government believes it. Psaki revealed that his “axis” with Havana would be “support for democracy and human rights” under the principle that “Cuban Americans are the best ambassadors for freedom in Cuba.”
Yes to the meeting
The Biden spokeswoman confirms not only that Cuba is on the agenda as part of the national security policy assessment process, but also that the Democrats are already woven into the relationship without classifying the island as a regime or a dictatorship. Country.
Diaz-Canel shows flair. In the face of the new administration in Washington, he believes in “a constructive bilateral relationship that respects differences.” On the one hand, this position indicates that the island is ready to work with the United States despite the ongoing economic embargo and sanctions, according to Spanish media.
The political game, then, is in the Congress and the Senate, where the Democratic majority is tiny and there lobby Kobe is a very active American and will be a key in Washington’s next moves. But according to El País, there are indeed “reasons” for a “new melt”.
The appointments in some of the key positions affecting Havana show that these “reasons” exist because “the team that Biden appointed to deal with foreign policy is aware of the Cuban issue that has to do with negotiations between the two countries and the implementation of Obama’s decision. Policies.”
Among them, the nominee for Secretary of National Security, Alejandro Mayorcas – born in Havana -, Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, or Director of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Samantha Power. With these three Cuban interlocutors they will participate in the dialogue. ”Perhaps the first lady, Jill Biden, who officially traveled to Cuba in October 2016, should be included in this group. Country.
