MIAMI, United States. — Despite the recent talks between delegations from both countries and the relaxation of restrictions by the United States government, the Cuban regime once again accused Washington of maintaining the “maximum pressure policy” promoted between 2017 and 2021 by the former president Donald Trump.
The island’s foreign minister, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, assured on social networks that the United States maintains inhuman policies of abuse against the Cuban people.
“In 2022, President Biden’s government maintained Trump’s maximum pressure policy, aimed at making the Cuban economy collapse and stimulating destabilizing actions,” Rodríguez Parrilla said on Twitter.
The official added that these policies have been accompanied by “disinformation operations to try to blame Cuba for the impact of inhuman policies of abuse by the United States.”

According to Rodríguez Parrilla, “the dignified resistance of our people and the growing international call for the withdrawal of Cuba of the arbitrary list of countries sponsoring terrorism and the end of the blockade, demonstrate the isolation of that genocidal policy of the United States that makes the Cuban population suffer”.
The Cuban foreign minister’s statements maintain the usual tone of Castro’s rhetoric, which tries to blame the northern country for the systemic crisis suffered by the Caribbean country.
Last week, the deputy director general for the US of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX), johana tabladahe had acknowledged in an interview offered to the magazine OnCuba that the United States had complied with the 20,000 immigrant visas provided for in the migration agreements between the two countries.
Tablada had also highlighted the steps taken by the US administration to put an end to the migration crisis and the illegal immigration of Cubans to the US, a demand from Havana in its eagerness to relaunch the path of rapprochement started in 2014 by former President Barack Obama.
