Cuba and Spain to discuss "human rights"

La Nueva Cuba has posted a story from Terra that states that Spain and Cuba will be meeting to discuss human rights at the end of the month. This is an effort at misinformation on the part of the regime, you see Cuba's foreign minister said, at a joint press conference with his Spanish counterpart Miguel Angel Moratinos, that they would be "discussing human rights" but that anything to do with Cuba and human rights would be OFF THE TABLE.

In fact, he affirmed at that press conference that Cuba has no political prisoners on "mercenaries and terrorists" behind bars. You see that's the thing about totalitarian dictatorships, they can do whatever they want to their opponents as long as the label them as undesirable.

In any event, what human rights are Spain and Cuba going to talk about if it's not the human rights of Cubans on the island?
