American congressman considers misguided US policies towards CubaHavana, Oct 4 (ACN) James McGovern, member of the US House of Representatives, said today in Havana that as a congressman he believes his country's policies towards Cuba are wrong and the Cuban people do not deserve to suffer for it.

The Massachusetts Democrat and Chairman of the House Rules Committee told the press that he is in Havana with a large business delegation and other congressmen who came to spread friendship to build bridges and create new relationships.
He also said they oppose current U.S. policies, want the blockade to be lifted, and want travel bans to end up.
Mc Govern commented that the current policies of the U.S. government have no validity or meaning, and recognized the important role played by Cuba in the peace negotiations in Colombia.
The U.S. Congressman insisted that the Caribbean island, even with the travel ban, should receive more citizens and politicians of his nation to know how great this country is.
The next steps for us would be to lift the blockade, reopen embassies in both countries and remove the Helms-Burton Act, he stated.
McGovern is accompanied by House member Rosa DeLauro, a Connecticut Democrat and former Congressman William DeLahunt, among others.
