embargo

Only 20 years (minimum) too late!
Senator Lugar, the senior Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a hugely influential figure in US politics, says Washington's policies towards Havana have been ineffective.


"After 47 years... the unilateral embargo on Cuba has failed to achieve its stated purpose of 'bringing democracy to the Cuban people'," he says.


"It may have been used as a foil by the regime to demand further sacrifices from Cuba's impoverished people."
