The Caribbean Community condemned Wednesday the inclusion of Cuba in the illegal U.S. State Department list of states sponsors of terrorism.
In a statement published on its website, CARICOM denounced the unilateral declaration by the outgoing United States administration.
The text added that Cuba’s international conduct does not in any way warrant that designation and that this further attack on the country adversely affects its international standing and its social, human, and economic development.
“It is another misguided action in addition to the unproductive, unnecessary, and illegal financial and economic embargo already imposed on this Caribbean nation by the United States,” the text read.
The statement concluded with a call for the immediate review and reversal of these unjustified actions and voicing CARICOM’s hope of seeing the United States advancing towards the normalization of relations with Cuba.
