The Cuban dictatorship’s Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez, took advantage of his speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday to describe as “a positive step” the resumption of the issuance of immigrant visas at the U.S. Embassy on the island.
Rodriguez reiterated in his speech his country’s willingness to “move towards a better understanding with the U.S. government and develop civilized relations”.
The Biden Administration announced Wednesday that its embassy in Cuba will resume in early 2023 all its services to issue this type of visa for the first time since 2017.
According to a statement, with this measure, Washington announces the expansion of the usual avenues available to Cubans who want to go to the U.S. and an increase in U.S. embassy staff on the island.
In this regard, Rodriguez added that his country is open to expanding cooperation with the U.S. “on the basis of mutual respect, sovereign equality and without undermining our independence.”
