The Office of the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica has issued a Statement for immediate release on Tuesday which we transcribe below because of its importance:

STATEMENT

CALL FOR REMOVAL OF CUBA ON UNITED STATES STATE SPONSOR OF TERRORISM LIST (SSOT)

Roseau, Dominica-May 21, 2024: The Commonwealth of Dominica notes with concern the continued inclusion of the Republic of Cuba on the United States State Department State Sponsor of Terrorism List (SSOT), which identifies governments that actively support violent non-state actors involved in terrorist activities. 

The Commonwealth of Dominica firmly holds that there is no evidence of state-sponsored terrorism (SST) acts being undertaken by the Government of Cuba and considers this an arbitrary classification intended to justify the decades-long economic embargo imposed on Cuba by the United States of America. 

Consequently, Dominica calls for the reversal of this unmerited and unjust listing of Cuba as a state which sponsors terrorism. 

Dominica further restates its call for the normalizing of relations with Cuba and the lifting of economic sanctions by the United States for the enhanced peace, stability and economic growth of the Cuban nation which has made tremendous contributions to the development and welfare of the Caribbean Region particularly in the areas of health, agriculture and education.

The Commonwealth of Dominica stands in solidarity with Cuba in its condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, including acts that qualify as state-sponsored terrorism.
