Cuban hard-liners cast shadow on Trudeau visit


CUBA EXPRESSIONCanadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, is heading to Cuba Tuesday as part of a three-country tour that will also take him to Argentina and Peru, where an APEC summit is being held, according to reports:

But analyst Robert Wright doesn’t expect Trudeau to push too hard on the country’s persistent problems with human rights, saying he will likely follow a similar tack to the one he took during a recent visit to China.

“It not likely that he will go to Havana with any kind of heavy handed agenda on political reforms. He has to walk that knife’s edge.”

The best thing that could happen in Cuba is the introduction of genuine reform, which would mark the beginning of the end of Castroism, other analysts suggest.
