Obama Could Ease Cuba Travel This Week

Tuesday, 17 Aug 2010 12:31 PM


U.S. and congressional officials say the Obama administration is considering easing travel restrictions to Cuba and could announce a decision before the end of next week.

The officials said Tuesday a decision on the move to increase "people-to-people" exchanges with the communist island has not yet been made. They said political considerations could still hold it up.

But they said the administration is keen to expand opportunities for American students, educators and researchers to visit Cuba. Details of the proposed policy shift were reported Tuesday by The New York Times.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because internal deliberations are still ongoing.
