Cuban Foreign Minister Accuses Trump Admin of Promoting Terrorism Against Cuba

HeadlineMay 19, 2020

Reuters reports the Trump administration is considering adding Cuba back to its list of state sponsors of terrorism. President Obama removed Cuba from the list in 2015 as the two countries restored diplomatic relations. Last week, the State Department included Cuba on a list of countries not cooperating with U.S. counterterrorism efforts.

Meanwhile, Cuba’s Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez has accused the Trump administration of promoting terrorist acts against Cuba. In April, a man armed with an AK-47 opened fire on the Cuban Embassy in Washington. Last week, Rodríguez criticized the Trump’s administration’s “complicit and suspicious silence” after the attack.

Bruno Rodríguez: “We hope that the United States government at least attempts to match its rhetoric against terrorism and its policy of fighting international terrorism with its responsibilities in the face of a terrorist attack that has taken place against a diplomatic mission in the center of Washington, D.C.”
