Cuba sanc­tions back on

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WORLD -

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has de­clared he is restor­ing some travel and eco­nomic re­stric­tions on Cuba that were lifted as part of the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion’s his­toric eas­ing.

He chal­lenged the com­mu­nist gov­ern­ment of Raul Cas­tro to ne­go­ti­ate a bet­ter deal for Cubans and Cuban- Amer­i­cans. Mr Trump said Cuba had se­cured far too many con­ces­sions from the US in the “mis­guided” deal but “now those days are over”.

Speak­ing in Miami, he said the move was an ef­fort to ramp up pres­sure to cre­ate a “free Cuba”.

“I do be­lieve that end is in the very near fu­ture,” he said.
