U.S. MAY FURTHER EASE TRAVEL TO CUBA…

Posted on 23 August 2010

 The Obama administration is considering easing travel restrictions to Cuba, U.S. and congressional officials said Tuesday, The move would leave intact the nearly 50-year-old embargo against the communist regime but would expand opportunities for American students, educators and researchers to visit Cuba. The discussions to ease restrictions follow the release in July of the first batch of political prisoners whom Havana had pledged to free. President Obama has said that he wants to reach out to the communist nation and promote democracy there by easing travel and financial restrictions. A decision could be announced by the end of August 2010.
