Cuba's Relationship with the EU in 2016

The European Union and Cuba held seven rounds of talks - two in 2014, four in 2015, and one in March 2016 - on a political dialogue and cooperation agreement (PDCA) covering political, trade, and development issues. The new cooperation agreement, which has to be officially approved by EU governments, would replace the 1996 Common Position. In 1996, the EU adopted a Common Position on Cuba, stating that the objective of EU relations with Cuba included ecncouraging "a process of transition to pluralist democracy and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms". The position also stipulated that full EU economic cooperation with Cuba would depend upon improvements in human rights and political freedom.
