Cuba and United States to Reopen Embassies Print E-mail

Another Historic Victory for Cuba’s Just and Principled Foreign Policy

- Isaac Saney, Co-Chair & Spokesperson, Canadian Network On Cuba, July 2nd -

The Canadian Network On Cuba welcomes the historic July 1st announcement by the governments of Cuba and the United States that both countries will reopen embassies and restore full diplomatic relations on July 20th.  Washington had unilaterally severed diplomatic relations between the countries in 1961.  The restoration of full diplomatic relations represents the resounding failure of Washington’s policy to isolate and destroy the Cuban Revolution. Indeed, it was Washington that has become isolated in world opinion.  This isolation is epitomized by the annual United Nations massive rejection of the U.S. economic blockade of Cuba, and by the return of Cuba at the overwhelmingly insistence of the nations of the Americas to the 2015 Summit of the Americas.


International Seminar for Peace and Abolition of Foreign Military BasesThe World Peace Council (WPC) and the Cuban Movement for Peace and Sovereignty of the Peoples (MovPaz), Regional Coordinator of the WPC for America and the Caribbean, convoke to the 4th International Seminar for Peace and Abolition of Foreign Military Bases.

The Seminar is to take place on November 22-25, 2015 in the province of Guantánamo, where a territory of 117 sq. Km. has been illegally occupied for more than one-hundred years by a United States naval base that is currently one of the most terrifying and inhuman torture centers of the planet.

This seminar will be an important occasion to increase the unity in the international struggle in favour of the suppression of the arbitrary and illegal military bases imposed against the peoples’ will.

The blockade by the United States on Cuba has negatively affected progress in my country. Although some do not want to admit it, the blockade has limited access to financing, technology, systems, infrastructure, software and applications. This was acknowledged by U.S. President Barack Obama’s announcement of investments in the telecommunications sector. That announcement alone illustrated the fact that internet access has been limited by the high cost of technology and the U.S.’s policy.
