EU Seeks End to Diplomatic Freeze in Cuba
HAVANA (Reuters) - The European Union (news - web sites) is considering a shift in policy toward Cuba that would get it back on speaking terms with President Fidel Castro (news - web sites)'s government, diplomats said.



EU policy-makers will meet on Tuesday in Brussels to discuss whether to stop inviting dissidents to National Day receptions in Havana, a practice that so incensed the Cuban government it shut its doors to European diplomats.


Spain and Britain believe the diplomatic freeze, in which ambassadors are shunned and telephone calls are not returned, has led to a dead-end that runs counter to EU interests in Cuba.

1. HAH!!! What a nice kick in the ass to the RW Cuban exiles .....
poetic justice that the Chimpy they believe will help in the overthrow of Castro instead has pissed off so many European leaders who are now looking to change their policy toward Cuba that Castro will end up in a strong position than before the Chimpy stole office

2. EU Seeks End to Diplomatic Freeze in Cuba
Plus the fact that,as of Nov 2004, the US dollar is no longer accepted currency in Cuba, it is illegal to use dollars now, although Cubans can remit their US cash in for a 10% fee during the grace period. And Euros ought to be coming back with a vengeance on the island.

Good news for Cuba, bad news for the US fascists in Washington.
