According to the State Secretary, Washington would take measures "to hasten the end of oppression" in that country. C. Rice made that statement in connection with the Commission of Assistance for a Free Cuba (CAFC) resuming its work.
The recommendations of the Commission would be submitted to President G. Bush next May, she said. By May, a flexible plan would be worked out to help the Cuban people to bring about democratic, free and fair election. "We shall provide our resources and experience to the Cuban people", promised the head of the US diplomacy.
