EU delays retaliation for Helms-Burton


TRALEE, Ireland (CNN) -- The European Union will wait until after the U.S. presidential election to retaliate against an American law that punishes countries trading with Cuba.

The EU believes that President Clinton backed Helms-Burton to win the votes of Cuban-Americans. After the elections, they surmise, the retaliatory measures will not be necessary because no action will be taken against EU nations.

At the weekend meeting near this west Irish resort, EU foreign ministers again unanimously denounced the law that allows Americans to sue foreign companies using property in Cuba that was seized from American owners after the 1959 Cuban revolution.
