A dawning of a new era of US-Cuban relations. The White House announces it will ease the way for US telecommunications firms to do business with Cuba and allow family travel and money transfers from the United States to Cuba.

 

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

 

"The President has directed the Secretary of State, Treasury1 and Commerce to carry out the actions necessary to lift all restrictions2 on the ability of individuals to visit family members in Cuba and to send them remittances3."

 

The decision does not eliminate Washington’s trade embargo4 against Cuba set up 47 years ago, but it does hold out the prospect5 for improving ties between the two foes6. Daniel Restrepo is a special assistant to the President.

 

"This is a step to extend a hand to the Cuban people."

 

Supporters of easing US sanctions against Cuba welcome the move which will affect an estimated one and a half million Americans who have family members in Cuba. Detractors say it will just help finance a communist government. Cuba is among the US's foes. US president Barack Obama has said he would be willing to engage diplomatically.

 

The announcement comes ahead of Obama's attendance at the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad later this week.
