Havana, August 6. – Cuba categorically rejected on Thursday the decision of the US government to include it once again in the list of states that support international terrorism, and demanded that it be removed from the list immediately.
Cuba's reaction to the measure promulgated by the US State Department was made known in a declaration by Josefina Vidal, director of the North American department of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"Once again the United States is questioning the seriousness of the commitment made by Cuba in the fight against international terrorism, and maintains one of the most irrational aspects of its hostile policy towards Cuba", she stated.
The text indicates that the US is also demonstrating its double standard by keeping the five Cuban anti-terrorists in unjust imprisonment while at the same time allowing Luis Posada Carriles to live in the US in freedom with complete impunity, along with others who have admitted responsibility for horrendous acts of terrorism against Cuba.(Prensa Latina)
