China backs Cuba’s claim that the U.S. “embargo,” a loose set of restrictions on Americans doing business with the Castro regime, is the sole cause of poverty and misery in the country. In fact, the United States does not ban humanitarian aid to Cuba, and the island trades with most of the other largest economies in the world, but most of the profits remain in the hands of the ruling family and out of reach of ordinary citizens. Cuba also imposes stricter restrictions on imports from the United States than the “embargo”, but denies these have any meaningful impact on its economy.
