Press Statement of the Embassy of Cuba

Addis Abeba, May 20, 2024.- On May 15, 2024, the U.S. Secretary of State submitted to Congress a list of four countries that allegedly "do not fully cooperate with U.S. counterterrorism efforts in calendar year 2023." Unlike in recent years, there is no mention of Cuba this time.

However, and in a clearly incoherent manner, the State Department itself maintains Cuba on a list that designates states that allegedly "sponsor" terrorism. It is an absolutely one-sided and unfounded list, with the sole purpose of serving as a pretext for the adoption of coercive economic measures against sovereign States.

There is a growing international demand for the U.S. government to correct this injustice and remove Cuba from the "list of states that sponsor terrorism," as it was also called this year in the resolution to lift the blockade on Cuba, approved by the 55 member states of the African Union at the 37th AU Summit.

The clear and absolute truth is that Cuba does not sponsor terrorism, but has been a victim of it, including State terrorism.

It is time to call U.S. government to be coherent and remove Cuba once and for all from that infamous and unilateral "list of states that sponsor terrorism."
