"No one tells the Cuban government that the next investment for this port or for that project will no longer be available because it is violating the fundamental human rights of its citizens.  It is being assumed that there are no Cuban citizens.  Since we have been displaced by the Cuban government for decades, they act as if there's nothing to discuss with the Cuban people.  So they only speak with the repressors of the Cuban people, with the functionaries of the Cuban government."
