Cuban President Says Recent US Moves are Limited and Restrictive

Havana, May 29 (ACN) The Cuba-related measures recently announced by the US government are limited, restrictive and do not affect the main core of the US blockade against our country, or other US high-pressure policy sanctions, said Cuban President Miguel Diaz Canel.

On his X account, the Cuban head of state wrote that the recently announced US moves do not eliminate or change the coercive measures affecting Cuban economy and public services, which have a hard impact on the wellbeing of the Cuban people.

The fact that such measures aim at a segment of the people reveals the historic intention to break the unity of Cubans, said Diaz-Canel.

He also said that the US concern on the development of the Cuban non-state sector is not genuine policy, which is in tune with a subversive design marked by well-known strategies like the manipulation and use of the non-state sector as a potential agent for change in the country.

As far as the strengthened US blockade continues to affect the Cuban people, the United States will not be able to prevent the world condemnation against that genocide using no bombs but aimed at devastating the admirable resistance of Cuba, Diaz-Canel noted.

The Cuban government will continue to promote the increasing integration of all local economic actors, which make up the milestone for the development of the country and the wellbeing of all Cubans.

On Tuesday, May 28, the US government announced a group of measures which, according to the release by the US Office for Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), aim to favor the private sector in Cuba.
