‘A Couple of Possibilities’ on Alan Gross Case, Kerry Tells Diaz-Balart Reply

By Progreso Weekly

Excerpt from John Kerry’s testimony Wednesday (March 12) to a House subcommittee on the federal budget. Asked about efforts to release USAID subcontractor Alan Gross, now held in Cuba, Kerry said:

“I have been meeting repeatedly, particularly in the last few months, on the Alan Gross issue. In fact, I met with his family just a couple of weeks ago and we — I am not going to go into it here, but I will tell you that we are very focused on a couple of possibilities on how we might try to approach that. We really want to get him back because obviously we don’t think he’s that well, and he’s wrongly in prison as far as we’re concerned, obviously. So, it’s a major priority for us, and the White House likewise. The White House has been very involved, we’re working together in initiatives to try to do this. We hit a stone wall in a couple but we’re continuing to try to do that. And I have a couple of ideas that I hope will work. So, we’ll see what happens.”
