105th Congress, 1st Session - - - - - - - - - - - House Document 105-62 REPORT TO THE CONGRESS DETAILING PAYMENTS MADE TO CUBA BY ANY UNITED STATES PERSON AS A RESULT OF THE PROVISION OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICES __________ COMMUNICATION from THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES transmitting A REPORT TO THE CONGRESS DETAILING PAYMENTS MADE TO CUBA BY ANY UNITED STATES PERSON AS A RESULT OF THE PROVISION OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICES, PURSUANT TO PUB. L. 104-114, SEC. 102(g) <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT> April 8, 1997.--Referred to the Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed The White House, Washington, March 28, 1997. Hon. Newt Gingrich, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Washington, DC. Dear Mr. Speaker: This report is submitted pursuant to 1705(e)(6) of the Cuban Democracy Act of 1992, 22 U.S.C. 6004(e)(6) (the ``CDA''), as amended by section 102(g) of the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity (LIBERTAD) Act of 1996, Public Law 104-114 (March 12, 1996), 110 Stat. 785, 22 U.S.C. 6021-91 (the ``LIBERTAD Act''), which requires that I report to the Congress on a semiannual basis detailing payments made to Cuba by any United States person as a result of the provision of telecommunications services authorized by this subsection. The CDA, which provides that telecommunications services are permitted between the United States and Cuba, specifically authorizes the President to provide for the issuance of licenses for payments due to Cuba as a result of the provision of telecommunications services. The CDA states that licenses may provide for full or partial settlement of telecommunications services with Cuba, but does not require any withdrawal from a blocked account. Following enactment of the CDA on October 23, 1992, a number of U.S. telecommunications companies successfully negotiated agreements to provide telecommunications services between the United States and Cuba consistent with policy guidelines developed by the Department of State and the Federal Communications Commission. Subsequent to enactment of the CDA, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) amended the Cuban Assets Control Regulations, 31 C.F.R. Part 515 (the ``CACR''), to provide for specific licensing on a case-by-case basis for certain telecommunications between the United States and Cuba, 31 C.F.R. 515.542(c), including settlement of charges under traffic agreements. The OFAC has issued eight licenses authorizing transactions incident to the receipt or transmission of telecommunications between the United States and Cuba since the enactment of the CDA. None of these licenses permits payments to the Government of Cuba from a blocked account. For the period June 30, 1996, through December 31, 1996, OFAC-licensed U.S. carriers reported payments to the Government of Cuba in settlement of charges under telecommunications traffic agreements as follows: AT&T Corporation (formally, American Telephone and Telegraph Company).................................. $19,162,032 AT&T de Puerto Rico..................................... 227,709 Global One (formerly Sprint Incorporated)............... 2,589,706 IDB WorldCom Services, Inc. (formerly, IDB Communications, Inc.)............................... 561,553 MCI International, Inc. (formerly, MCI Communications Corporation)........................................ 5,354,423 Telefonica Larga Distancia de Puerto Rico, Inc.......... 104,498 WilTel, Inc. (formerly, WilTel Underseas Cable, Inc.)... 2,913,610 WorldCom, Inc. (formerly, LDDS Communications, Inc.).... 1,687,896 -------------------------------------------------------- ____________________________________________________ 32,601,427 I shall continue to report semiannually on telecommunications payments to the Government of Cuba from United States persons. Sincerely, William J. Clinton. <greek-d>
