Cuba Study Group

The Cuba Study Group today issued the following statement regarding the report issued by Senator Richard Lugar recommending a new approach in U.S. policy toward Cuba:



“The report issued this week by Senator Richard Lugar regarding U.S. policy toward Cuba is a thoughtful review of the obvious failures in our policies. Its recommendations for a new, more effective approach toward Cuba are very constructive and deserve careful consideration. We call on all members of Congress to work with Senator Lugar to explore ways to enhance the effectiveness of our policies and thus take advantage of this window of opportunity."
