Ministry of Foreign Affairs Multilateral Affairs Officer
Gustavo Argueta on October 8. Argueta pointed out that this
is not the first time the USG has offered aid to Cuba and
been denied by the Cuban regime. He said it was a difficult
situation, particularly because few NGOs are able to operate
in Cuba. Argueta suggested that the USG use multilateral
channels to offer humanitarian assistance.
