Castro blames Trump for 'setback' in US-Cuba relations

Raul Castro
Donald Trump's hardline stance towards Cuba marks "a setback" in its relations with the United States after ties were gradually restored in 2015, president Raul Castro said.

Castro criticised Trump's partial rollback of his predecessor Barack Obama's rapprochement with the communist island in comments made less than a week before the second anniversary of Havana embassy's reopening in Washington on July 20.

"The announcements made by the current president... mean a setback in bilateral relations," Castro said in remarks, broadcast on state television, at the closing of the first session of Cuba's Parliament on Friday.
