Angolan association asks US to normalize relations with Cuba

Luanda, Jan 25 (Prensa Latina) The Angola-Cuba Friendship Association asked US President Joe Biden to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba in an effort to end the long blockade, it was announced on Monday.

With the reference number 01/GSG-ASAC/2021, the text was handed over to the US Embassy in Luanda, Jose Fernando Jaime, secretary-general of the Angola-Cuba Friendship Association, confirmed.

The philanthropic association suggested to the US president to continue the Obama Administration’s process: the US diplomatic actions back then resulted in US Secretary of State John Kerry reopening the US Embassy in Havana in 2015.

In its claim, the Association advocated the US reestablishing regular flights and cruisers’ journeys, removing Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism and allowing Cuban and US citizens to visit each other.

If carried out, such gestures ‘would absolutely help to normalize diplomatic relations between both countries, lifting the economic, financial and commercial blockade,’ the document added.

The solidarity organization strongly believes that US President Joe Biden ‘will know how to unite and rebuild the North American nation and, as obviously, return to the coexistence of international organizations to enhance harmony among nations.’
