The White House stated today that it is to remove Cuba from the "terrorist" list of nations. Cuba was originally on the list alongside other nations such as Syria, Iran, North Korea, and Sudan.
Not all are in favour of the move to thaw the cold relations the two nations have held for 50+ years. Republican presidential candidate, Cuban-American, and Senator Marco Rubio condemned the move, stating Cuba still harbours "fugitives of American justice" and that the country is helping North Korea in evading weapon sanctions currently imposed by the United Nations.
Winds of Change
Cuba, originally put on the Terrorism List in 1982, is said to not have supported any international terrorist group in the last 6 months, and that the US government has received assurances from the Cuban government that none will take place in the future. It is also believed that Cuba no longer supports revolutionary groups such as the ETA or Farc, leading to the decision to remove Cuba from the list, something that was a major concern for the Cuban government prior to the talks occurring.
