U.S. church network asks to remove Cuba from terrorist list.

More than 120 Presbyterian churches in the United States signed a letter to President Joe Biden calling for the removal of Cuba from the arbitrary list of sponsors of terrorism because it inflicts suffering on Cubans today.

"Mr. President, you have the power to remove Cuba from the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. Cuba is not a terrorist country," said the signatories.

Madam Vice-Chair;


Distinguished delegates;

I bring from Cuba a message of solidarity and support for the Palestinian people. The indiscriminate attacks against the civil population and the United Nations workers; the bombings against hospitals, ambulances and schools and the mass destruction of housing and vital infrastructure are a collective punishment as well as a serious violation of International Humanitarian Law.

We stand in solidarity with all victims and share the grief of the Arab and Hebrew communities in Cuba.
