Havana, Jan 12 (RHC) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel condemned Tuesday the inclusion of the Caribbean nation on the list of countries that sponsor terrorism.
Through his Twitter account, the president assured that the inclusion of Cuba by the United States in the list of countries that sponsor terrorism ‘are the last throats of a failed and corrupt administration committed to the Cuban mafia in Miami’.
Cuba, victim of terrorism and blockade
The discredited Trump administration is doing everything possible to hinder and prevent an improvement in relations during Biden’s presidency,’ Díaz-Canel denounced, adding that the U.S. blockade against Cuba is an example of state terrorism.
And at the height of cynicism, the terrorists and immoral people of the Trump administration’ accuse the country of sponsoring that scourge.
The head of state also wrote that ‘the world condemns the hypocritical and cynical qualification’ in reference to the examples of international denunciation after the inclusion of the Caribbean nation in that list.
The day before, the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, announced in a statement the decision of the department in charge of designating the island in the list of nations that sponsor terror.
The largest of the Antilles had been excluded from that group in 2015, during the process of rapprochement with the United States during Barack Obama’s second term (2009-2017).
According to the communiqué, Cuba is included for allegedly “providing repeated support to acts of international terrorism by granting safe haven to terrorists”; accusations that the island has repeatedly denied.
