Uruguayan President Urges Barack Obama to Free Cuban Anti-terrorists and Improve Relations with Havana
Havana, May 13 (RHC) – Uruguayan President Jose Mujica asked Barack Obama to take action and free the three Cuban anti-terrorists who are still in U.S. prisons, since the issue is a major factor to improve relations with Cuba
Speaking with reporters at a news conference after meeting with Obama at the White House, Mujica said that he called for the improvement of relations between the United States and countries such as Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua, although it was not a personal mission in his recent meeting with Obama.
“I do what I can, I defend the interests of the group of countries to which I belong, if I see a door open I try to get in, but I’m not God. I’m trying to do diplomacy as far as I can,” Mujica told reporters in Washington.
Regarding Venezuela, the Uruguayan president said that his government is willing to mediate between the opposition and the Bolivarian government if Uruguay is called to do so. Mujica said he was informed about the Venezuelan political process and pointed out that the sector that is trying to topple the government of Nicolas Maduro does not represent the majority of the opposition, which has two different trends.
Mujica said that during his meeting with Obama, he made it clear that he wants the Union of Latin American Nations, the Organization of American States and other institutions to help find a peaceful and democratic solution to the situation in Venezuela.
