New U.S. regulations on Trade and Travel to Cuba.
Thursday, January 15, 2015

The U.S. government has begun implementation of measures previously announced by President Obama, eliminating some restrictions on trade with Cuba, and travel to the country by U.S. citizens in certain categories. The economic, financial and commercial blockade remains in place, along with prohibitions on tourism and maritime travel.
On January 15, the United States government announced the implementation of measures announced by President Barack Obama on December 17, 2014, eliminating some restrictions on trade with Cuba, and travel to the country by U.S. citizens in certain categories. A preliminary reading of the regulations issued by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control indicates that these changes modify the enforcement of some aspects of the blockade. Although the travel ban has not been eliminated - which would require Congressional action – some restrictions on travel by U.S. citizens and permanent residents in 12 previously established categories were eased.

Statement by the Cuban President
Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Fellow countrymen, Since my election as President of the State Council and Council of Ministers I have reiterated in many occasions our willingness to hold a respectful dialogue with the United States on the basis of sovereign equality, in order to deal reciprocally with a wide variety of topics without detriment to the national Independence and self-determination of our people.
This stance was conveyed to the US Government both publicly and privately by Comrade Fidel on several occasions during our long standing struggle, stating the willingness to discuss and solve our differences without renouncing any of our principles.
The heroic Cuban people, in the wake of serious dangers, aggressions, adversities and sacrifices has proven to be faithful and will continue to be faithful to our ideals of independence and social justice. Strongly united throughout these 56 years of Revolution, we have kept our unswerving loyalty to those who died in defense of our principles since the beginning of our independence wars in 1868.
Today, despite the difficulties, we have embarked on the task of updating our economic model in order to build a prosperous and sustainable Socialism.
As a result of a dialogue at the highest level, which included a phone conversation I had yesterday with President Obama, we have been able to make headway in the solution of some topics of mutual interest for both nations.
As Fidel promised on June 2001,when he said: “They shall return!” Gerardo, Ramon, and Antonio have arrived today to our homeland.
