WASHINGTON, CMC – The United States has denied reports that it plans to remove Cuba from a list of countries that support terrorism.
“I saw that report. Let me say firmly here it is incorrect,” US State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters here. “This department has no current plans to remove Cuba from the state sponsor of terrorism list.
“We review this every year, and at the current moment when the last review was done in 2012, we didn’t see cause to remove them,” she added.
“We’ll obviously look at it again this year, but as I said, we don’t have any plans at the moment,” Nuland continued.
White House spokesman Jay Carney also said: “We have no changes in our approach or policy to Cuba to announce or under consideration that I’m aware of.”
