A top Cuban diplomat accused the Obama administration of not doing enough to dismantle the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba and said the United States wants to turn Cuba into an “appendage” of the United States.

In a half-hour interview held in conjunction with the anniversary Wednesday of the opening of the Cuban embassy in Washington, Emilio Lozada, the Cuban ambassador to Russia, told Russian television that dialogue between U.S. and Cuban leaders may have been restored, but that the “major obstacles” behind two generations of hostility remain the same.
