“‘Despite longstanding disagreements between the United States and Cuba, four decades of an embargo have not led to solutions. Expanding communication, not continued isolation, is a productive step toward advancing U.S.-Cuban relations and toward addressing U.S. concerns about political liberties and economic reform in Cuba,’ according to Brian Alexander, Executive Director of the Cuba Policy Foundation. Mr. Alexander added, ‘U.S. policy must reflect the reality that 11 million people live in Cuba, not just one man. By opening lines of communication with Cuban officials as well as opponents of Castro’s government, Americans speak directly with those who will shape the future of Cuba and the future of the U.S.-Cuban relationship.’” [Con Embargo]
