Mahama commends Obama for lifting Cuba sanctions

President Obama in GhanaThe Government of Ghana has commended the United States of America (USA) and Cuba for their recent initiative to normalise relations between them.

Ghana’s Minister of Communication, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah said the recent release of the ‘Cuban 5’ who had been held in American jails on charges of spying, and the release by Cuba of an American national held in Havana “is an important first step towards a thawing of the frozen relations between the two nations since the cold war.”

Government, the statement noted, is hoping that this positive development, including the loosening of restrictions on travel by US citizens to Cuba, will lead to a broader engagement that will eliminate the last relics of the cold war represented by the economic blockade of Cuba.

“President John Mahama commends highly, Presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro for this initiative to normalize relations”, the statement added.
