US & Cuba Hold Talks To Remove Cuba From “State Sponsors of Terrorism” List

Cuban and U.S. officials met on Friday in Havana to discuss anti-terrorism measures, Cuba’s interior ministry said, broaching a particularly thorny subject between the two long-time rivals in the latest in a series of bilateral talks.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump placed Cuba on the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, a designation that Cuba’s government has rejected.

The list imposes strict sanctions on the communist-run island, complicating financial transactions and contributing, Cuba says, to a severe economic crisis that has led to shortages of fuel, food and medicine and a record-breaking exodus of migrants north to the United States.

The interior ministry statement said Cuba had expressed its opposition to the designation in this week’s meetings, which began Thursday, but said both parties agreed to continue the talks going forward.
