Russian Agreements

In order to begin the slow process of rebuilding some trust, the two countries should develop a framework for cooperation when their interests overlap and to manage differences before they intensify. In the U.S. approach, small pragmatic steps should prevail over the big ambitious goals. The ability to seize these opportunities depends on the leadership, will and vision of the leaders of both countries, who must overcome a wall of mutual distrust and resistance from public opinion, politicians and legislators. During the New Jewel Movement, the Soviet Union tried to use the island of Granada as a Soviet base, and also by receiving supplies from Cuba. In October 1983, during the U.S. invasion of Grenada, U.S. President Ronald Reagan claimed that U.S. marines were arriving on the island of Granada, considered a Soviet-Cuban ally that would export the communist revolution throughout the Caribbean region. In November, at a joint hearing of the Subcommittee of Congress, it was said that Grenada could be used as an intermediate warehouse for subversion of neighbouring countries, for the intersection of waterways and for the transit of troops and deliveries from Cuba to Africa and from Eastern Europe and from Libya to Central America. In December, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a preliminary report on Grenada, calling it “the island of Soviet internationalism.” When the U.S.
