Havana - President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Wednesday reiterated the rejection to restrictions on cultural and educational trips to Cuba, as well as visits with private and other ships announced by the United States.
The new measures, entering into force this Wednesday, will intensify the blockade and violate international law, the President posted on Twitter.
Washington does not cease in its 'perverse desire to bend Cuba', and attached a link to an article on the issue published in Granma newspaper, Diaz-Canel posted.
The US Department of the Treasury announced on Tuesday that it will not allow cultural and educational trips with the Cuban people, known as 'people to people.'
They included in this section an 'exemption' which establishes that certain educational group visits, previously authorized, could be carried out if the person has already completed at least one transaction related to the trip (such as the purchase of a ticket or accommodation reservation) before June 5.
According to the statement, the administration of President Donald Trump will prohibit travel to Cuba to private and corporate planes, cruises, sailboats, fishing boats and similar vessels.
The measures respond to the announcements of National Security Adviser John Bolton, when he stated on April 17 that new restrictions to non-family trips to Cuba would be applied.
