Quote of the Day: EU Common Position to Remain

Monday, January 20, 2014
At no time have we spoken about repealing the Common Position.  What we've discussed is giving the [European] Commission a mandate so that it can explore an association agreement with Cuba -- an association agreement that must have the respect for human rights as its central element. In the meantime, the Common Position will continue to remain in effect as it has been.
