Raúl Castro uses liberal amounts of ice over U.S. Overture

President Raúl Castro dismissed President Obama’s changes in policy toward Cuba as “achieving only the minimum,” and said Wednesday that it was up to the United States – not Cuba – to do more to improve relations. The State Department shot back that the onus was on Cuba to show it was serious about meaningful negotiations. Mr. Castro said his government would not take any steps to appease Washington, telling an international gathering of government ministers, “It is not Cuba who has to make gestures.” The Obama administration has allowed unlimited travel and money transfers for Americans with relatives in Cuba and has eased restrictions on telecommunications.
