CUBA, Cuba (AP) Secretary of State Dan Miller says the U.S. government claims a Colorado farm has been sold in Cuba to a family with ties to the U, a claim the U., which is under a court order, says it has disputed.
Miller’s comments came after U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to reject claims that the farm was seized by Cuba.
The U.L.A.S., which said Monday it bought the farm from a U.C. Davis-based company, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The U.F.C., which represents U.U.S.-Cuba relations, did nothing Monday to comment.
The farm, a 6,000-acre plot on the outskirts of the city of Las Vegas, was the largest U. S. crop to be sold in Havana in decades, according to a U,S.
official familiar with the deal.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is confidential.
The official said the sale was approved by the Cuban government and that the U government is working with Cuban officials to secure the rights of the family.
The deal also involves the sale of U.D.C.’s U.B.T.A., the country’s top agriculture research and development organization, and its U.A.-U.C.-C.
A, an agency for research on genetically engineered crops, the official said.
The State Department says the farm has a total value of $5 million.
The farm has an annual yield of more than 1.2 million bushels.
Miller, speaking at a news conference in Miami, said he has not been in contact with the U-S.
officials involved in the deal but that he was in Cuba this week, which is a violation of U-N sanctions on Cuba.
Miller said the U and the UF.
D.-C were working with the Cuban authorities to “ensure that there is a fair outcome for the sale.”
