Obama administration measures to loosen economic sanctions against Cuba have been "extremely limited and insufficient," Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla told the U.N. General Assembly on Monday.
Barack Obama's election in November 2008 raised expectations of change, Rodríguez said.
It seemed that a period of extreme aggressiveness, unilateralism and arrogance in the foreign policy of that country had come to an end and the infamous legacy of the George W. Bush regime had been sunk in repudiation.
Rodríguez said an early Obama speech carried messages of "change, dialogue and cooperation..." But, he said,
Unfortunately, time goes by and the speech does not seem to be supported by concrete facts. His speech does not coincide with reality.
