As a preamble we leave this comment of the many published on the site of the original article posted by a Cuban:
” The storm began … this man does not know that we have endured 11 administrations that have invented everything and in the end they have not been able to with us …? we hope that he changes his ideas, otherwise we will have more years of battles with the conviction that of this side not Accept pressures or blackmail … time to time”
- a @CubanWindow Deja Vu:
With Cuba, Trump will have to take his gifts and put them … in the closet of his presidential suite
In the Trump view:
“Cuba did not offer any concession, with all that has been PROVIDED in what has been the normalization and reestablishment of agreements and diplomatic treatment.”
It is a sign of total ignorance of the harsh history that characterizes the relations between Cuba and the US + the recent attempts of rapprochement between both nations that already bear some advantage results for both.
When he speaks about gifts and concessions, he show the historic mistaken and repetedly US Governmentes vision about everything that exists beyond our borders, the tunic of imperial superiority does not allow him to see beyond his nose and what is more shameful seems to know nothing about the island and its long history of resistance to the manipulations and disastrous attempts launched by agressives 11 American governments.
Cuba has always given the first step in the attempt to establish relations with US and we do not speak of recent history * Fidel Castro Ruz came to this country after the triumph of the socialist revolution in the island interested in maintaining relations of respect and cooperation , In response we give you the economic and commercial blockade that lasts for more than 58 years
For the United States acting according to the norms of good behavior, respect for self-determination, sovereignty, cooperation without measuring sizes and equal conditions in the matter of foreign policy is a challenge : we are left with this “Exuberance of Grandeur” that we have been instilled and which we now raise as a banner from the presidential chair occupied by an egocentric and volatile subject with which to appeal to rational decisions is a challenge.
Raul Castro Ruz, President of the Republic of Cuba recently expressed:
I wish to express Cuba’s willingness to continue to negotiate pending bilateral issues with the United States, on the basis of equality, reciprocity and respect for the sovereignty and independence of our country, and to continue respectful dialogue and cooperation on issues Of common interest with the new government of President Donald Trump.
Cuba and the United States can cooperate and coexist civilly, respecting differences and promoting everything that benefits both countries and people, but it should not be expected that Cuba will make concessions inherent to its sovereignty and independence.
The economic, commercial and financial blockade persists, causing considerable human deprivation and damage that seriously damages our economy and hampers development.
Just choose between:
- the deja vu
- the comment of a Cuban
- Raul statment
either serves as an answer to Trump
