Cuba eases ac­cess

The Dominion Post - - World -

Cuba will make it eas­ier for its US-based ci­ti­zens to travel to the is­land, For­eign Min­is­ter Bruno Ro­driguez said yes­ter­day, in a ges­ture to win sup­port from Cuban Amer­i­cans dur­ing a diplo­matic cri­sis over al­le­ga­tions of mys­te­ri­ous health at­tacks.’’ The US govern­ment closes, and Cuba opens,’’ Ro­driguez told a meet­ing of pro-Ha­vana Cuban Amer­i­cans in Wash­ing­ton. He said Cuban ci­ti­zens in the United States would no longer need to have a spe­cial re­view of their Cuban pass­ports to re­ha­bil­i­tate them be­fore trav­el­ling to the is­land. That pro­ce­dure had be­come more dif­fi­cult due to staff short­ages at the Cuban em­bassy af­ter the US govern­ment ex­pelled 15 Cuban diplo­mats this month dur­ing a dis­pute over mys­tery ‘‘at­tacks’’ on US per­son­nel.
