The island nation wants U.S. diplomats to stop supporting Cuban
opposition parties

Cuba warned the U.S. this week against aiding opponents of Havana’s
communist government, as the two countries move toward re-establishing
diplomatic ties after over 50 years of adversarial relations.

In an interview broadcast on state television, the island nation’s top
official for U.S. affairs said that the establishment of an American
embassy in Cuba is contingent on a scaling back of support for
groups, Reuters reports.

“The total , which the U.S. side is posing, is tied
to a change in the behavior of its diplomatic mission and its
officials,” Josefina Vidal said, ahead of a second round of bilateral
talks to be held in Washington next month.

“Matters of the internal affairs in Cuba are not negotiable,” Vidal added.

Much of the Cuban diaspora in the U.S. remains hostile to the Castro
regime, including many influential figures in Washington.
