josefinavidal[1]Havana, April 15 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Ministry acknowledged the decision of the US government to exclude the island from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism.

In a statement of the General Director of US Foreign Ministry, Josefina Vidal, the action of US President Barack Obama on this issue was reported last night.

In this regard, the Foreign Ministry said the American president issued the “Certification of termination of the appointment of Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism ‘.

By this action, President Obama has decided to exclude Cuba from the list of state sponsors of international terrorism and report to this effect to Congress, which will have 45 days to decide.

The Government of Cuba acknowledges the legitimate decision of the President of the United States to eliminate the island of a list in which never should have been included, it says.

As the government has reiterated on numerous occasions, Cuba rejects and condemns all acts of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations as well as any action which has the aim to encourage, support, finance or cover such activities, ratifies the statement.
