Havana.- The group Melia Hotels International reaffirmed its interest in the operations it carries out in the Cuban tourist market, where it manages several facilities.
In a statement, the chain said that the decision by the government of Donald Trump to activate Title III of the Helms-Burton Act as of next May 2 does not mean alterations in their activity in Cuba.
Melia operates legitimately in Cuba and in 44 other countries, having carried out an impeccable, professional and responsible management for 30 years in the Caribbean nation.
The group also thanked for the strong support and reaction promoted by the Government of Spain and the European Commission to foreign companies affected by a law, which is considered extraterritorial.
Approved in 1996, the regulation codifies the economic, financial and commercial blockade that Washington has imposed on Havana for almost six decades, a siege that has been condemned by the international community.
