U.S Congressman Bradley Byrne has had a change of heart in the recent changes to U.S-Cuba relations and said he's looking forward to a "normalised relationship with Cuba that's beneficial to both countries". Byrne originally criticised President Obama when Cuba was recently removed from the U.S. List of State Sponsors of Terrorism.

Congressman Byrne voices positive thoughts on new U.S and Cuba relations

Only very recently U.S Congressman Bradley Byrne has changed his views on the recent changes to relations between America and Cuba.

Byrne originally criticised President Obama's decision to remove Cuba from the U.S. List of State Sponsors of Terrorism, saying:

"I have a hard time understanding how the President can make this decision."

However, following a recent visit to Havana, Cuba, it seems that the congressman has had a change of heart, he commented:

"Cuba is not involved with the terrorists we see today, which is mainly among Islamic groups in the Middle East."

Congressman Byrne also explained:

"So, I think the President made the right decision to remove them from the terrorist list. That's a long way from saying that we've worked out all of our national security issues with them, but it's a step in the right direction and I'm glad the president took it and I'm ready to build on that by getting some mutual agreements with the Cubans with regard to our internal security, their internal security and the security of this region".

He added that "Cuba is a beautiful country and the people there are really great", and he's looking forward to a normal relationship with the communist island that will benefit both the United States and Cuba.

Cuba still has a long way to go with its infrastructure to prepare for an influx of American tourists, but the thaw in the decades-long embargo will mean many changes for the two countries.

Tourism has not yet been approved as a reason to visit Cuba, but American residents can visit the island for educational, religious, academic and cultural and family purposes across 12 categories, and licences for these trips are no longer required.

Cuba is an island nation in the Caribbean Sea that boasts beautiful natural landscapes and historic sites for international visitors to enjoy, such as miles of pristine beaches, the second largest coral reef in the world, historic towns and cities such as its capital Havana, thriving national parks, stunning natural scenery, and a tropical sunny climate.
