Embargo

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

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

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

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

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