“We’re watching” the situation in Cuba and “have nothing to announce,” a spokesperson for the National Security Council (NSC) told el Nuevo Herald.
Even though Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un — “Adversaries can become friends,” the president declared — the White House does not believe there is an opportunity for negotiations with Miguel Díaz-Canel, 58, named as president of Cuba in April.
“No. Raúl is in charge,” said the NSC official, who agreed to speak on background. “I don’t know about a better deal, but our policy is that if Americans go to Cuba to do business with Cuba, the money should go to the private sector and not to companies controlled by the military.”
