Senator Wyden on Cuba

December 31, 2014 --

Wyden-ron-SenatorOregon Senator Ron Wyden

U.S. Senator Ron Wyden issued the following statement  praising President Obama’s announcement of new steps to open up relations with the Cuban people:

“I applaud the President for today’s announcement and for taking these historic steps to normalize relations with Cuba. I have long believed that trade and engagement are liberalizing forces and I look forward to working with my colleagues and with our diplomats to bring about the progress in Cuba that we all want to see. I am also pleased to hear that imprisoned American citizen Alan Gross has been allowed to return to the United States, and that the U.S. and Cuba have separately agreed to an exchange of captured intelligence agents.

For more than a half-century, the United States has sought to isolate Cuba diplomatically and economically and bring down the Castro regime. By any metric, that policy has failed. At some point, policy makers must put aside personal ideology, look at the historical record, and reassess. In my judgment, that point is now.
