"Cuba hasn't asked the United States government to give it anything," the Foreign Ministry said in the Communist Party newspaper Granma. "Simply that it lets us buy."

Because the houses of the government/party bosses need some repairs.

In any event, the request puts the Cuban government in somewhat of a dilemma. It has to swallow its anti-Yankee/anti-capitalist pride and acknowledge it needs the U.S. to rebuild.
