El gobierno del presidente Joe Biden anunció el lunes que aumentará los vuelos hacia Cuba y levantará las restricciones impuestas por el exmandatario Donald Trump a las remesas que los inmigrantes pueden enviar hacia la isla.

El Departamento de Estado indicó en un comunicado que retirará el límite actual de 1.000 dólares trimestrales a las remesas familiares y permitirá las remesas no familiares, que brindarán apoyo a emprendedores independientes cubanos. Washington también permitirá vuelos programados y fletados a otros lugares además de La Habana, señaló la agencia.

“Con estas medidas, intentamos apoyar las aspiraciones de libertad y de mayores oportunidades económicas de los cubanos para que puedan llevar vidas exitosas en su país”, añadió el Departamento de Estado. “Seguimos haciendo un llamado al gobierno cubano a que libere de inmediato a los presos políticos, respete las libertades fundamentales del pueblo cubano y le permita determinar su propio futuro”.

El cambio de política se anuncia luego de una revisión que inició poco después de una serie de protestas generalizadas en la isla en julio pasado.
