• Cuba says Obama’s steps to ease embargo ‘insufficient’


    HAVANA: Cuba’s trade minister said Monday that US President Barack Obama’s moves to ease the five-decade embargo on the communist island are “incomplete and insufficient.” With Obama heading toward a potentially historic meeting with Cuban President Raul Castro this week, Trade and Foreign Investment Minister Rodrigo Malmierca criticized the US leader’s limited steps to ease the crippling trade and financial embargo the US has maintained on Cuba since 1962. He called on Washington to allow Havana to use dollars for international transactions and clear the way for Cuban exports to the US.
