Seychelles calls for an end to U.S. arbitrariness against Cuba

Victoria, May 28 (Prensa Latina) The withdrawal of Cuba from the spurious list of countries that support terrorism was demanded today by the Seychelles-Cuba Friendship Association in a statement circulated here to the media.

The Republic of Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, in West Africa, and the text was issued to coincide with the non-inclusion of Cuba on the list of countries that do not fully cooperate with U.S. anti-terrorism efforts, announced by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken recently.

Cuba was added to the list of countries that support terrorism during former President Donald Trump’s term in office as a gift to his supporters from Republican politicians who control the majority of the electorate in the state of Florida.

We believe that it is a contradiction to remove Cuba from the list of countries that do not cooperate in the fight against terrorism, and at the same time maintain it on the list of countries that “sponsor terrorism.”

The text adds that this relation “is used to increase the economic sanctions against Cuba: This is a great injustice, which causes much harm and suffering to the Cuban people.”
