Vietnamese call for Cuba’s exclusion from US terrorist list

The definitive and permanent exclusion of Cuba from the unilateral list elaborated by the U.S. government and which designates States allegedly sponsoring terrorism was demanded today by solidarity organizations.

The United States should consider putting an end to and permanently eliminating Cuba from that list, thus stopping the imposition of a series of irrational and unfounded economic and financial blockade measures that seriously affect the life of the brotherly Cuban people, a statement issued by the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association emphasizes.

The statement also points out that through information from the press and diplomatic agencies, last May 15, it was announced, that the U.S. government decided to remove Cuba from the list of countries that did not cooperate with U.S. anti-terrorist efforts in 2023.

There is only one Cuba

With this announcement, the US government intends to address only one sector of our population. The coercive measure that most affect Cuba’s economy and public services and severely harm the wellbeing of our population are neither eradicated nor modified.

Speech by the Vice President of the Republic of Cuba, Salvador Valdés Mesa, high-level meeting on resource mobilization for Small Island Developing States

It is a fact that the imbalances of the international financial system do not provide the necessary stability to achieve the sustainable development goals and meet the special needs of small Island Developing States.

The alternative for our countries can no longer be based on old formulas. The only viable solution lies in the rethinking of the unjust and unequal international economic order and the current bases that define North-South relations and life on the planet.
