Cuban Official Rules Out Reforms Urged by Pope

• New York Times

The comments from the minister, Marino Murillo, the vice president of the Council of Ministers and the official overseeing the steps toward a freer market, amounted to a rebuttal of sorts to the pope, who in recent days has portrayed the political system here as unworkable and has laced his comments since arriving on Monday with calls for increased liberties.

“We are updating our economic model, but we are not talking about political reform,” Mr. Murillo told reporters at a hotel in Havana, as television screens to his side showed images of the pope departing Santiago de Cuba en route to the capital.
