US removes Cuba from its list of State Sponsor of Terrorism

In a landmark decision, the United States has removed Cuba from its list of State Sponsor of Terrorism, paving the way for normalising ties frozen for half a century and lifting of additional sanctions against the communist country. The US State Department spokesperson Jeff Rathke said that the rescission of Cuba’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism reflects their assessment that Cuba meets the statutory criteria for rescission.

He said that while the United States has significant concerns and disagreements with a wide range of Cuba’s policies and actions, these fall outside the criteria relevant to the rescission of a State Sponsor of Terrorism designation. Such a decision by the Secretary of State John Kerry follows after the expiry of 45 day notice period to the Congress.

In December last year, US President Barack Obama had instructed the Secretary of State to immediately launch a review of Cuba’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, and provide a report to him within six months regarding Cuba’s support for international terrorism. On April 8, 2015, Kerry completed that review and recommended to the President that Cuba no longer be designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism.

The move eliminates a major obstacle toward restoring diplomatic ties after 54 years of hostilities. The change allows Cuba to conduct banking in the United States, among other activities.
