The official expressed on the social network Twitter that the island remains committed to the right of citizens to travel, emigrate and return in accordance with the requirements of the Cuban migration law.
Soberón denounced that this right is affected by the measures adopted by Republican President Donald Trump (2017-2021), which remain in force, and hinder communication between families.
In his message he recalled that the closure of consular services in Havana, the arbitrary interruption of the granting of visas to our nationals, forcing them to travel to third countries without guarantees of granting them, among other measures, constitute obstacles to the regular flow of travelers.
Cuban and US officials resumed today in Washington the rounds of talks on migration issues that were paralyzed in 2018 during the Trump administration, in which, according to previous statements by both parties, the reactivation of bilateral agreements will be analyzed.
Signed in the 1990s, the migration commitments between Cuba and the US establish obligations for both governments to guarantee the right of citizens to migrate and to do so safely.
