President's Statement on Second Report of the Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba

     Fact sheet Fact Sheet: Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba Report to the President

President George W. Bush meets with the National Security Council Wednesday, July 5, 2006.
Today I approved the second report of the Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba. I also approved a Compact with the People of Cuba, which outlines how the United States will support the Cuban people as they transition from the repressive control of the Castro regime to freedom and a genuine democracy. The report demonstrates that we are actively working for change in Cuba, not simply waiting for change. I call on all our democratic friends and allies around the world to join us in supporting freedom for the Cuban people. I applaud the work of the Commission, co-chaired by Secretary Rice and Secretary Gutierrez.
