DIAZ-BALART STATEMENT REGARDING CUBAN REGIME'S ANNOUNCEMENT
MIAMI—Today, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro announced that he will not “seek the position of President of the Council of State and Commander in Chief,” to which Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) issued the following statement:
“As of this time, there is no change in Cuba. Fidel Castro may have “relinquished” some titles, but he is still the dictator and in control. True change will not begin in Cuba until all political prisoners are released, political parties, labor unions and free press are legalized, and the process of free, supervised, multi-party elections begin. We must continue to press for a democratic transition from this oppressive regime,” said Diaz-Balart.
