Alarcon: No improved relations with U.S.

HAVANA (AFP) — Cuba said the detention of five of its nationals who were convicted of spying in the United States more than a decade ago, remained a major obstacle in normalizing ties with Washington.

"As long as this injustice continues, it will be a formidable obstacle, insurmountable, for having normal relations between the two countries," the president of Cuba's National Asembly of Peoples Power, Ricardo Alarcon, said on state television.

Alarcon said their continued imprisonment indicated that "the United States continues to be an official supporter of terrorism against Cuba."

JG: The United States hypocrisy about terrorists continues. We all know that Orlando Bosch and Luis Posada Carriles, directed and financed by the C.I.A., are good terrorists. Right, folks?
