HAVANA TIMES, Aug. 27 – The U.S. government should lift all the travel to Cuba restrictions for its citizens, affirmed Bill Richardson, governor of the state of New Mexico, who is on a visit to the island. Richardson has met with the Caribbean country’s political and business sector authorities, reported IPS.
Gov. Richardson has made it clear he is not an official envoy of the (Obama) administration and is “visiting Cuba as a governor seeking agricultural trade.”
However, he told AP that he would make a report on his trip. “Obviously I do plan to submit my impressions to the administration after I conclude,” he added. “I will do that as a citizen and as a governor. They’re my impressions alone.”
Richardson is expected to return to the United States on Friday.
