 The easing of regulations on travel to Cuba by Americans could add pressure on the Cuban government to implement economic reforms, the White House said on Tuesday.

The new measures unveiled earlier on Tuesday by the U.S. Treasury Department ahead of an historic visit by President Barack Obama to Havana next week also ease limits on the use of US dollars there.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest made the comment during a regular press briefing.
