He has always been a staunch supporter of CYPRUS, due to the vast number of Cypriot support for him in his state. Menendez, of Cuban descent, was critical of prez.. malaka Shistofias, for visiting Cuba and praising Fidel Castro..

Overheard at a cocktail party last time he was in Cyprus.....one of our “genius” MP’s decided to offer out some of his expensive Cuban cigars. Considering the Senator as an ethnic Cuban the moron thought he’d be worshipped.

Menendez instead turned round to him and said, “ my country has an embargo on those products due to the violent regime that exports them. Perhaps next time you come to the US I should offer you mandarins from Morphou”

Cuban cigars have always been a favorite of US politicians despite all the animosity with Cuba and I don't exactly know how but I'm pretty sure many US politicians manage to get their hands on them which they share out at parties etc.

Menendez hated the Castro regime with a passion. Expected the same respect back from the Cypriots who were constantly asking for non recognition and trade embargo on the occupied areas.

Yeh but this guy is an American Cuban and all American Cubans basically fled the regime in Cuba, do not like the regime there and are supportive of the US embargo.

So offering him a Cuban is like going to DT and offering him Morphou Oranges. That is the point the US Senator made.

Yes, I seem to have missed the part that he's an exiled Cuban.
