Since the beginning of this year the United States State Department has issued several announcements on the partial suspension of the implementation of some aspects of a chapter of the so-called Helms-Burton Act. It has been done so with a cheating style, fraudulent, characteristic of the current rulers, with the clear intention of creating uncertainty and confusion, purpose for which they count, as usual, with the means they were supposed to devote themselves to reporting.
The Ministry of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment (MINCEX) reports that it is the governing body of the Central Administration of State, in charge of coordinating international aid. It is a well-structured process, which has been put into practice whenever the country has gone through natural disasters, adds the note.
On January 16, 2019, the United States State Department announced the decision to suspend for only 45 days the application of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, “to conduct a careful review… in light of the national interests of the United States and efforts to expedite a transition to democracy in Cuba and include factors such as the Cuban regime’s brutal oppression of human rights and fundamental freedoms and its indefensible support for increasingly authoritarian and corrupt regimes in Venezuela and Nicaragua.”
