US interested in restoring access to Internet in Cuba - WH

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters during a briefing on Friday the United States government is interested in restoring access to the Internet in Cuba and is currently exploring a range of options in seeking a way to do so.

Psaki noted that it is harder than some US lawmakers made it sound in their previous statements, but the US believes that accessible worldwide web would be beneficial to the people of Cuba, as they would be more exposed to information, as well as better means of communication.

Last week Cuban government blocked Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Telegram and other websites in order to prevent the free circulation of information amid mass protests against the country's worst economic crisis.
