Andrew Cuomo on Foreign Policy

Democratic Governor

  
 


Trade mission to Cuba across a multitude of sectors

Governor Cuomo will lead international trade missions to markets including Mexico, Canada, Italy, China, Israel, and Cuba. Cuba is unique. Since 1960, trade and travel to and from Cuba have been largely restricted. Now, the doors to this market of more than 11 million people are being opened to New Yorkers, and New York businesses. In the coming weeks, Governor Cuomo will lead a special trade mission to Cuba to expand opportunities for New York's businesses across a multitude of sectors.

Follow Congressional process in Syrian intervention

Cuomo waded into Washington's debate on US military action against Syria: "I want to see an intelligent, sober, non-political discussion that comes up with an intelligent conclusion through a deliberative process," Cuomo said. "I want to see the federal government work, which means I don't want to see the gridlock we've been seeing. I don't want to see the hyper-partisanship we've been seeing that has political discussion rather than policy discussion."

Cuomo's comments come as Pres. Obama seeks authorization from Congress to strike Syria. Cuomo appeared to endorse Obama's approach of seeking congressional approval, even as Obama himself asserted that he retains the right to order strikes against Syria even without such authorization.

"This is a truly serious, phenomenally serious, topic," Cuomo said. "You're talking about a loss of life. You're talking about possibly putting Americans' lives in harm's way. So the process and the fact that government works and works well is critical here."
