The Cuban Regime's Credibility Quandary

Monday, May 11, 2009
Reuters reports on talks between European Union officials and the Cuban Foreign Minister:
"Our views did converge on the issues of climate change and U.N. reform; they did not in the area of human rights," Czech Foreign Minister Jan Kohout said after EU officials held talks with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez.

"We came back to the issue of political prisoners in Cuba and their health, and the answer we got was that in Cuba there are no political prisoners," he told reporters.
