Expert Predicts Changes in U.S. Policy Toward Cuba

Washington, Nov 19 (Prensa Latina) The Republican win in midterm elections of November 4 is thought to have little influence on United States policy dynamics toward Cuba, says today an article of digital website Progreso Weekly.

The text signed by Jesús Arboleya Cervera, Cuban expert in U.S.-Cuba relations, says tjhat in previous days to the polls there was media pressure to demand president Barack Obama to change Washington policy toward the island.

But according to Arboleya, it seems obvious that promoters of the campaign were expecting poll results would end in a republican victory as it occurred in fact.

In the recent elections,. Republicans recovered majority in the Senate and consolidated their control on the House of Representatives.

Arboleya says things could be easier for Obama due to the weakening of pressures in his own Party, due to the next substitution of democrat Robert Menendez as president of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Senate, when the next legislature assumes its post in January, 2015.

The expert concluded U.S. policy toward Cuba is exhausted, incapable of satisfying objectives for which it was designed, is counterproductive for North American interests and is rejected by the majority of public opinion.
