At President Biden’s direction, the United States is actively pursuing measures that will both support the Cuban people and hold the Cuban regime accountable:
We can't let remittances to Cubans fall into the hands of the oppressors.

We're setting up a Remittance Working Group to figure out how to get that💰 directly into the pockets of the Cuban people.
A strong and adequately staffed embassy is vital to our efforts to support the Cuban people.

We're looking at ways to safely augment staffing to facilitate diplomatic, consular, and civil society engagement.
We call on Cuba's leaders to reinstate – & maintain – access to internet & telecom services.

We are working with the private sector & Congress to identify ways to make the internet more accessible to the Cuban people.
In 2020 alone, U.S. companies exported $176 million of goods to Cuba, including food & medicine.
We will expedite any request to export humanitarian or medical supplies to Cuba's people.
We encourage our international partners to increase humanitarian assistance to Cubans.
We are going to focus on applying hard-hitting sanctions on regime officials responsible for the brutal crackdown.

Cuban officials responsible for violence, repression, & human rights violations against peaceful protestors in Cuba must be held accountable.
The United States will intensify diplomatic engagement with regional and international partners to support the aspirations of the Cuban people.

We must collectively condemn the violence and repression upon the Cuban people for demanding freedom.

(1/7) Bajo la dirección del presidente Biden, Estados Unidos está activamente aplicando medidas que apoyarán al pueblo de Cuba y harán que el régimen cubano rinda cuentas.
(2/7) No podemos dejar que las remesas de los cubanos caigan en manos de los opresores.

Estamos formando un grupo de trabajo sobre remesas para descifrar cómo podemos llevar ese dinero directamente al bolsillo del pueblo cubano.
(3/7) Una embajada con un personal fuerte y adecuado es vital para nuestros esfuerzos por apoyar al pueblo cubano.

Estamos buscando maneras de incrementar el personal para facilitar la participación diplomática, consular y de la sociedad civil.

#Cuba is compiling its annual list of grievances for a @UN vote on the U.S. embargo today. The reality is that Castro regime mismanagement is responsible for the flaws in Cuba’s economy. Follow our thread today/tomorrow as we explain the reality behind the embargo #EmbargoFacts
@UN Cuba claims its food & medical supply issues stem from the embargo. Newsflash! The embargo permits U.S. food, medicine, and medical devices to be exported to #Cuba- however, the regime chooses to import just a small fraction of the authorized goods. #EmbargoFacts #BloqueoInterno
@UN The U.S. has authorized $12 billion of food and agricultural exports to #Cuba since Jan 2018. Cuba chooses to import just 3% of those goods. Castro regime mismanagement, not U.S. sanctions, is responsible for Cuba food shortages. #EmbargoFacts #BloqueoInterno
