Russia considers maintenance of embargo against Cuba unacceptable

Moscow believes that the maintenance of embargo against Cuba is totally unacceptable, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after a meeting with his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez.

“We think the maintenance of the embargo against Cuba contrary to the will of a vast majority of UN member-states is absolutely unacceptable,” he said.

Sanctions against Cuba were introduced in 1960 in response to the expropriation of Americans’ properties. They were expanded later on up to a virtually full commercial and economic blockade of the island.

Les Cubains autorisés à voyager hors de leur île

La direction communiste s'apprête à assouplir les restrictions qui pèsent depuis un demi-siècle sur la population de l'île. Comme tout Cubain, la vendeuse de cacahuètes de la rue Respublica à Camaguey n'a qu'un mot à la bouche: «Voyager.» Cette mulâtresse qui rêve d'ailleurs apostrophe un client. «Désormais, avec un passeport cubain, tu vas pouvoir voyager partout dans le monde», insiste-t-elle. «Et le visa?», questionne son vis-à-vis. «Un simple papier. Un détail», répond-elle.
Les Cubains vibrent pour une nouvelle révolution, celle du voyage. Elle a été annoncée en octobre par le Granma, l'organe officiel du Parti communiste cubain. Avec un titre: «Cuba actualise sa politique migratoire».

Ενημέρωση για την υγεία του Ούγκο Τσάβες ζητά η αντιπολίτευση

Ο κύριος συνασπισμός της αντιπολίτευσης της Βενεζουέλας ζήτησε σήμερα από την κυβέρνηση να πει "την αλήθεια" σχετικά με την κατάσταση της υγείας του προέδρου Ούγκο Τσάβες, ο οποίος εισήχθη σε νοσοκομείο της Κούβας πριν από τρεις εβδομάδες για θεραπεία του καρκίνου από τον οποίο πάσχει.
Το αίτημα αυτό υποβάλλεται σε μια στιγμή που κυκλοφορούν φήμες ακόμη και για το ότι ο Τσάβες έχει πέσει σε κώμα, καθώς η πολυήμερη θεραπεία του και η απουσία επίσημης ενημέρωσης εντείνουν την σχετική ανησυχία για την κατάσταση της υγείας του.
