Q24N (acn) Representatives of Central American nations, plus Ecuador, Cuba, Colombia and the U.S., addressed in Mexico the situation of thousands of Cuban stranded in Costa Rica in their effort to make it to US territory encouraged by Washington´s policies.

In the meeting, Mexico agreed to let the Cubans keep on their way to the US once they arrived at Mexican border, said Costa Rican foreign minister Manuel Gonzalez and he also added that US authorities would accept the Cubans who make it to their borders in tune with their dry-feet, wet-feet policy, which they would keep in force despite the fact that it encourages the irregular migration of Cubans.

Cuba on its part reiterated its willingness to receive all those citizens who decide to return and urged the US administration to change their migration policy towards Cuba as a major contribution to the solution of the case.

The Costa Rican foreign minister said that an opening to the situation could take place in an upcoming meeting to be held December 28 in Guatemala or in Mexico.

The Mexico meeting was marked by the criterion that the Cuban migrants´ situation is a result of the preferential treatment given by the U.S. to Cuban nationals who make it to their territory, disregarding the way the use to get there.
