Ros-Lehtinen's Statement on Raul Castro's Possible Retirement

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Ros-Lehtinen says, "It's not a matter of if, but when, the Castro brothers ultimately vacate power -- but the real change in Cuba involves much more than the Castro brothers. If dictator Raul Castro states that he will retire in five years, there will still be no real change for the Cuban people so long as the Castro brothers remain in any form of leadership position, even behind the scenes. The whole system crafted by the Castro brothers is corrupt and must be totally replaced. Shifting the deck chairs on the sinking Titanic won't produce positive changes. The U.S. should not change its policy of isolation of the Cuban regime until, according to US law, there are free, fair and internationally supervised elections, all the political prisoners are released and human rights are finally respected. The fact that this possible "retirement' won't take effect for years is just another in a long line of false propaganda tactics used by the regime to trick the masses and international community. U.S. law states that no Castro may be in power, so this may be a ploy by the Cuban regime to attempt to normalize relations prematurely with the U.S. "
