HAVANA, March 30 - RIA Novosti, Oleg Vyazmitinov. Former U.S. president

of trade and economic embargo declared by the U.S. against Cuba, and to exclude Cuba from the list of countries
According to the ex-president, the Helms-Burton Act, passed in 1996 during the presidency of Bill Clinton and tighten the embargo should be completely abolished. Its adoption
and signing was a mistake, the law itself is counterproductive, I'm sure Carter.
