EU stands with Cuba despite US policy changes, says foreign relations chief

Federica Mogherini
The European Union (EU)'s representative for foreign affairs and security policy on Wednesday said the bloc stands with Cuba in its reform process regardless of recent US policy changes which seek to isolate the island nation.

In a conference at the San Geronimo College in Old Havana, Federica Mogherini, who is on a two-day official visit to Cuba, ensured her listeners that the EU will strengthen ties with Cuba.

"As Europeans want to show that we are closer than ever to you, that Cuba will not be left alone. In front of those who build walls and close doors, we want to build bridges and open doors through cooperation and dialogue," she said.

"It isn't time for demonstrations of force that lead nowhere and are really a proof of weakness ... the best way to accompany Cuba's transformation is through commitment and dialogue," she added.

Last year, US President Donald Trump decided to roll back the historic opening and process of normalization of ties initiated by his predecessor, Barack Obama, and imposed trade and travel restrictions on Cuba.
