Sweden turns on Cuban military dictatorship, supports revision of EU cooperation agreement with regime

The Swedish government is supporting a revision of the so-called Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement (PDCA) between the European Union (EU) and the Cuban regime, a move that could deeply impact the Caribbean military dictatorship.

In a response to a letter about the agreement from deputy Björn Söder, Swedish Minister of Foreign Trade Johan Forssell indicated “there are reasons” to review the EU’s policy towards Cuba.

“The government is concerned about the continuing negative events in Cuba and the repressive actions of the Cuban state. It can be said that the PDCA agreement has been provisionally applied for just over five years and our government’s assessment is that there are reasons for a review of the EU engagement policy and the PDCA agreement, including EU aid to Cuba,” Forssell said.

Dr. Orlando Gutiérrez Boronat, Coordinator of the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance (ARC), described the pronouncement of the Swedish government as “historic.”

“It is a huge event. The suspension of the disgraceful financing of the European Union to a terror regime like that is a forceful act of support for the Cuban people in their fight for their homeland, their lives and their freedom,” he added.

“The problem is that the financing of the European Union is being used to oppress the Cubans,” Söder said in the letter, which highlighted irregularities in the agreement amid the escalation of Cuban police repression police and human rights violations.
