Screwy Maths

The EU in a rare fit of conscience broke off official relations with Cuba in 2003. The reason for this unusal dislike of socialist dictatorship was the imprisonment of 75 political opponents of the totalitarian regime. Now things have changed:

Despite opposition from some member states, EU foreign ministers agreed on Monday (31 January) to end a diplomatic freeze against the Communist regime in Cuba.
Perhaps soft power has claimed another success?
The moves towards re-establishing ties, pushed strongly by Spain, came up for discussion following of the release of 14 of the them last year.
So 75 steps back 14 forward is obviously seen as progress. Can anyone else see the mathematical error?
