Felipe Perez Roque wants normal and respectful relations with US

Posted March 14, 2007 by publisher in Cuba Politics.


Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque said Monday he would like “normal and respectful relations with the United States,” EFE news agency reported.

During his visit to Paris, Perez Roque—who was in France for a meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement—said he is prepared to hold bilateral talks anytime the United States is ready.

Cuban President Fidel Castro fell ill earlier this year and appointed his brother Raul interim leader of the communist island. Since assuming control in July, Raul Castro has also suggested he was open to talks with the United States.

We just picked up this story but cannot find any other news articles besides this from UPI. Interesting choice of words if Mr. Perez Roque was quoted correctly.
