No Vacancy

Mexico City officials finally closed the Sheraton Hotel that kicked out a Cuban delegation to comply with the Cuban embargo.

However Management of the Sheraton Maria Isabel is defying the order and says operations continue as normal.

This incident has become a major campaign theme. Mexican Presidential candidates have chanted outrage in chorus.

US officials have supported the hotel move. They reckon the Cuban embargo applies to American companies operating overseas.

Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Ernesto Derbez has declared to media that US law could not be applied in a third country.

By no complying with the order the Sheraton is just getting things worse with a display of arrogance that won’t be welcome in Mexico and can only affect America’s image.
