Washington Satisfied with Cuban Collaboration on Haiti

PARIS – The top U.S. diplomat for Latin America, Arturo Valenzuela, expressed here Friday Washington’s satisfaction with Cuban collaboration with regard to humanitarian aid for earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

“We have been in direct contact with the Cuban authorities who made it possible to fly over their territory on humanitarian missions, including those of the U.S. Air Force,” the assistant secretary of state said in Paris on a European tour.

He gave a positive rating to the collaboration of countries that included Cuba, Brazil, Bolivia, France, Canada and the Dominican Republic in their solidarity with Haiti, where the Jan. 12 temblor is blamed for at least 212,000 deaths.

Valenzuela also referred to the change in U.S. policy toward the Cuban regime.

“We’re seeking a Cuba that is open. The policies of the past with regard to Cuba were not effective,” the diplomat said, adding that the Barack Obama administration “has changed some of those policies.”

He mentioned that there are talks going on between Washington and Havana on “subjects of common interest” such as aspects of trade. EFE
