that it will take time because
both countries have to

The Bahamas last Friday issued a
rare travel advisory for any of its cit-
izens visiting the United States, rec-
ommending that young men in par-
ticular take care in cities affected by
recent tensions over police shootings.
A statement from the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs warns visitors to "exer-
cise appropriate caution" in light of
recent episodes involving police officers
and black men. It also advises people
not to get involved in demonstrations
and to avoid crowds.
"In particular young males are asked
to exercise extreme caution in affected
cities in their interactions with the
police. Do not be confrontational and
co-operate," the statement said.
The advisory comes after two black
men were shot in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, and Minnesota, and five
police officers were killed and seven
others wounded at a protest in Dal-
las---marking the deadliest day for US
law enforcement since the September
11, 2001, terrorist attacks. (AP)
President Raul Castro acknowl-
edged last Friday that the crisis in
Venezuela, Cuba's key ally and main
trade partner, is having a negative
spillover effect on the island's econ-
omy, days after officials began order-
ing energy-saving measures for the
According to a transcript of Castro's
speech to members of parliament post-
ed by the official website Cubadebate,
the Cuban leader said the economy
grew just one per cent in the first part
of the year, half of what the government
had planned for.
The economic performance was
"conditioned by the intensification of
external financial restrictions caused
by the failure to meet (targets for) export
earnings, together with the limitations
faced by some of our principal com-
mercial partners due to the fall in oil
prices," Castro said.
"To that you add a certain contrac-
tion in the fuel supplies agreed upon
with Venezuela, despite the firm will
of (Venezuelan) President Nicolas
Maduro and his government to fulfil
them," Castro added. "Logically that
has caused additional tensions in the
functioning of the Cuban economy."
Venezuela, which relies heavily on
oil-export income, has been rocked by
a deepening political and economic cri-
sis with shortages of basic goods and
rampant inflation. Although Castro
mentioned the crisis in general terms
in December, it was the first time he
referred to it specifically or said that
Cuba is getting less fuel from the South
American nation under preferential
terms hammered out over a decade ago
by then-presidents Fidel Castro and
Venezuela has been sending Cuba a
little under 100,000 barrels a day,
accounting for about half the island's
energy needs. Castro did not give figures
on how much less Cuba is now getting,
nor did he specify whether the hit was
to fuel that the island consumes or
extra volumes on top of what the agree-
ment calls for.
