Spanish Right Wants End to Dialogue with Cuba

HAVANA TIMES, March 24 — The right-wing Spanish Popular Party (PP) will request today before Spain’s Senate the end of the bilateral dialogue with the Cuban government begun three years ago in response to the death of oppositionist Orlando Zapata and as a form of pressure for the release of political prisoners, reported the press in Madrid.

Meanwhile, the ruling Spanish Workers Socialist Party (PSOE) will propose a motion to maintain the talks in order to “create the bases for a future of national reconciliation, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms,” reported IPS.
