Spain has a huge influence in Cuba. Hundreds of thousands of Cubans emigrated from Spain to Cuba less than a hundred years ago. They have a huge influence — a direct, indirect and cultural influence. I hope that the influence on democracy will be exercised. I am not saying that Spain must approve all American tactics regarding Cuba. Forget American tactics. They can agree with them; They cannot agree with them; You may agree with some, not others. Forget it. Don`t look at Cuba with your eyes, what you think of America or the Bush administration or anything else. Forget about us. Think of the Cuban people and their right to freedom, and think of your own history.
It describes the bilateral and multilateral trade agreements to which that country belongs, including with the United States. Includes websites and other resources that allow U.S. companies to get more information about how they can use these agreements. John P. Willson maintains that Hayes organized and accelerated aid to Jewish refugees crossing Spain. The U.S. War Refugee Board supported a more aggressive rescue policy, not a simple discharge. The board`s hopes were more disappointed by the Spanish restraint than by Hayes.
 Historian Emmet Kennedy rejects accusations that Hayes was an admirer of Franco. Instead, he was “a fierce critic of the “fascism” of the Caudillo. Hayes played a central role in rescuing 40,000 refugees – French, British, Jews and others from Hitler. He helped them cross the Pyrenees to Spain and North Africa. He made Spain “a refuge from Hitler.” In retirement, Kennedy believes, Hayes advocated patient diplomacy, rather than the ostracism or subversion of Franco`s Spain. This was the policy pursued by President Eisenhower when Franco led Spain to an alliance with the United States in the 1950s.  The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee worked openly in Barcelona.  Spain led by Zapatero turned to Europe from the United States and pursued a middle ground in managing tensions between Western powers and the Islamic population.
 In an interview with El Pas in May 2007, Daniel Fried, Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, commented on relations between Spain and the United States as a whole: “We are working very well together on certain issues. I think Spanish-American relations can evolve. I think some Spanish civil servants are competent and highly qualified professionals, and we work very well with them. I would like Spain to be active in the world, to work through NATO, to be active in Afghanistan. They do a lot in the Middle East because Moratinos knows a lot about it. But Spain is a big country and your economy is huge. I think Spain can be a force for security, peace and freedom in the world. I think Spain has that potential, so I would like To see Spanish-American relations develop.  John Jay negotiated a contract with Spain to settle these disputes and expand trade. Spain also attempted direct diplomacy that offered access to the Spanish market, but the cost of closing the Mississippi for Western farmers for 25 years and blocking expansionists from the South. The resulting Jay Gardoqui contract was rejected by a coalition of southern countries led by James Madison and James Monroe of Virginia, who complained that it harmed their people and instead favored the commercial interests of the Northeast.
The contract was rejected.   The emotions of American public opinion were deeply stoked by the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, and about 3,000 American citizens volunteered to serve in the Spanish Republican Army, although the U.S. government remains stubbornly neutral.
