Spain: Cuba erred in expelling politician

Spain's foreign minister says Cuba erred in denying entry to a Spanish politician who has promoted ties with Cuban opposition figures but says encouraging reform is a long-term project.
Miguel Angel Moratinos told reporters Tuesday that Spain wants to use its recently started EU presidency to improve relations with Cuba and encourage dialogue to move the country towards improved respect for human rights and democracy. He says snags along the way are to be expected.
The Cuban ambassador to Madrid was summoned to the Foreign Ministry Tuesday to explain the expulsion of European Parliament lawmaker Luis Yanez and his wife from Cuba on Monday.
