  • Description

    A THREE-MAN CUBAN TRADE GROUP, REPRESENTING A TRACTOR IMPORTING FIRM, ARRIVED IN LONDON TODAY (THURSDAY). THEY FLEW IN FROM SPAIN WHERE CUBA HAS BEEN NEGOTIATING FOR INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT INCLUDING LORRIES.

    AT THE AIRPORT SENOR ERNESTO MARTINEZ, WHO LED THE GROUP, SAID THAT HIS FIRM WERE INTERESTED IN IMPORTING "GENERAL MACHINERY" FOR CUBA. THEY WILL SPEND SOME DAYS IN ENGLAND BUT NO DETAILS OF BUSINESS DISCUSSION WITH BRITISH FIRMS WERE GIVEN.

    IT IS THOUGHT LIKELY THAT THEY WILL VISIT THE BRITISH ROAD-BUILDING EQUIPMENT FIRM OF AVELING AND BARFORD.

    (SPANISH TRADE WITH CUBA COULD AFFECT RELATIONS WITH THE UNITED STATES. ON FEBRUARY 19TH, THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCED THERE WOULD BE NO NEW ECONOMIC OR MILITARY AID COMMITMENTS IN SPAIN AND MOROCCO UNTIL THOSE COUNTRIES HAD "CLARIFIED" THEIR POLICIES ON TRADE WITH CUBA. AT THE SAME TIME THE AMERICAN MILITARY AID TO BRITAIN WAS CUT OFF. THE ACTION WAS TAKEN UNDER THE NEW FOREIGN AID BILL BY CONGRESS IN DECEMBER. IT PROVIDED THAT NO FOREIGN AID SHOULD GO TO ANY COUNTRY THAT HAD NOT TAKEN "APPROPRIATE STEPS" TO PREVENT ITS SHIPS OR AIRCRAFT FROM TRADING WITH CUBA BY FEBRUARY 14TH.

    (IN RECENT YEARS AMERICA HAS GIVEN SUBSTANTIAL FOREIGN AID TO SPAIN AND HAS RECENTLY REACHED AN AGREEMENT WITH SPAIN TO SET UP AN ANCHORAGE FOR NUCLEAR SUBMARINE AT ROTA).
