Representatives of Central American nations, plus Ecuador, Cuba, Colombia and the US, addressed in Mexico the situation of thousands of Cuban stranded in Costa Rica in their effort to make it to US territory encouraged by Cuban Adjustment Act.
In the meeting, Mexico agreed to let the Cubans keep on their way to the US once they arrived at Mexican border, said Costa Rican foreign minister Manuel Gonzalez and he also added that US authorities would accept the Cubans who make it to their borders in tune with their dry-feet, wet-feet policy, which they would keep in force despite the fact that it encourages the irregular migration of Cubans.
Cuba on its part reiterated its willingness to receive all those citizens who decide to return and urged the US administration to change their migration policy towards Cuba as a major contribution to the solution of the case.
