Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on U.S. Cuba Relations April, 2010

Cuba's leaders do not want to normalize ties with the US because then they would lose their excuse for the state of the country, says Hillary Clinton.
Cuba's response to recent US efforts to improve relations had revealed "an intransigent, entrenched regime" in Havana, said the U.S. Secretary of State.
The Cuban authorities have long blamed a 48-year US trade embargo for holding back the country's development.
The U.S. says the embargo will remain until Cuba improves human rights.
