Embargo

posted by .

Would one country impose an embargo on another to improve relations or to punish it? I'm pretty sure it's to improve relations. Can anyone verify that?
thanks

    Nope. I suggest you look up embargo in a dictionary.

    I did. So instead would it be "to punish it"?

    The most obvious example of how an embargo hurts a country is to see how Cuba is affected by the US embargo.

    Right. Embargos try to prohibit trade to and from the country; the purpose is to punish the country.
