Cuban President Raul Castro Rebuts Trump At National Assembly

Cuban President Raul Castro has ratified his administration's willingness to continue engagement with the U.S. despite a setback in relations between the two countries.

In his first public comment on Trump's new Cuba policy, Castro told the country's National Assembly that any attempt to topple the revolution would fail, as it had under 11 previous USA presidents.

Castro, however, reiterated his government's position: that it would still work to normalize relations with Washington, despite renewed attacks.

Trump, however, left many of Obama's reforms in place, including the establishment of diplomatic relations.

Speaking to the National Assembly, Castro called Trump's policies a "setback" and ejected any "lessons" on human rights from the United States.

According to the Cuban leader, Trump's policy does not reflect the support of Cuban-US rapprochement among the US nation and the Cuban emigrants in the country, while only satisfying the interests of a small Anti-Castro community in Florida. The two countries became ideological foes soon after the 1959 revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power, and their ties remained hostile even after the end of the Cold War.
