Dominica, Roseau, 7 October 2016. Cuba's ambassador in the Commonwealth of Dominica, Juan Carlos Frómeta, highlighted the validity of the US blockade against Cuba despite the restoration of diplomatic relations last year. In statements given to the local radio station DBS, the Cuban diplomatic stressed that there can be no normalization of bilateral relations as economic, commercial and financial blockade is lifted, not the territory now occupied by the illegal naval base in Guantanamo be returned without ceasing subversive programs and radio broadcasts against Cuba.
Dominica, September 25, 2016. The Chancellor of the Commonwealth of Dominica, Honorable Senator Francine Baron, reiterated the traditional support of her country to the lifting of the US blockade against Cuba, during the High-Level Segment of the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly held in New York.
In the period between April of 2015 and April of 2016 some results have been achieved in the bilateral relations between the United States and Cuba. It can particularly be indicated the re-establishing of diplomatic relations and the re-opening of embassies that were preceded by the just action of taking Cuba off the spurious list of States sponsoring terrorism, a list on which Cuba should never have been in the first place.
