"President Obama's policy with Cuba was a one-sided affair, there was no give and take".

President Donald Trump's Friday announcement on reinstating limits on travel to and business with Cuba may result in lost economic opportunities for corporations, small businesses, and farmers.

The ministry also said that the new approach toward Cuba by the US administration resembles a "Cold war rhetoric".

Under Trump's directive, embassies in Washington and Havana will stay open and cruises and direct flights between the United States and Cuba would be protected under an exception from the prohibition on transactions with military-controlled entities. But academic groups opposed the rollback of President Obama's policies toward greater engagement with Cuba.

But the action was a substantial symbolic step away from seeking better relations between the two nations.

Mel Martinez and questioned the former chairman of the RNC over his support of President Donald Trump's new policy concerning Cuba. As president-elect, Trump had said that only fools or stupid people would not want closer ties with Moscow.
