Marco Rubio has asked the Secretary of State, John Kerry, to meet with opponents while visiting Cuba for the opening of the US Embassy in Havana according to El Nuevo Herald.
The newspaper, based in Miami, claims to have had access to a letter in which Senator and Republican candidate asks Kerry to take the trip, scheduled for Friday August 14, "to demand freedom and rights of the Cuban people."
"During your visit, you should meet with the brave leaders who struggle to bring freedom to Cuba and invited them to the ceremony," urges Rubio, specifically appointed Antonio Rodiles, Berta Soler, Jorge García Pérez Antúnez, Oscar Elias Biscet, Ivan Carrillo and Guillermo Fariñas Hernández. "They, and many others, not the Castro family, are the legitimate representatives of the Cuban people," he adds.
Rubio, says the paper, is against the Obama administration for giving "so much money and giving legitimacy to the Castro regime for nothing" and says he will try to change everything that has made the current president if he came to the White House.
