The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic underlines the importance of a solidary and principled EU policy. The process of releasing the political prisoners in Cuba is exactly and above all the result of the positive pressure on Cuba, applied by the EU through its common policy and the measures from June 2003.

The MFA expects that this trend will continue in the future.
