Worldwide rejection of Cuba’s inclusion on US list grows

Almost fifty governments around the world have so far rejected Cuba’s inclusion on the State Department’s list of countries that sponsor terrorism, according to the Cuban Foreign Ministry.

In addition to the claim, there have been statements of repudiation from movements, organisations, institutions, activists and international personalities, who describe this designation as unjust and arbitrary, and denounce its consequences for the Cuban nation and families.

The day before, in a letter addressed to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops urged Joe Biden’s government to remove Cuba from the list and begin the path of mutual understanding.

The Russian State Duma (lower house of the Federal Assembly) also repudiated Washington’s provision, which limits the rights of Cubans inside and outside the island and hinders any kind of humanitarian aid, business, investment and trade related to the Antillean nation and its citizens.

The persecution of financial transactions to and from Cuban territory and trade relations affects all spheres of life.

Likewise, the coercive measure creates additional obstacles to the delivery of humanitarian assistance at a time when the country is grappling with shortages of basic goods and medical supplies, exacerbated by the tightening of the US blockade policy.

It ostensibly limits or even outright bans exchanges of artists, writers, academics, activists and journalists residing on the island.

Paradoxically, while the US keeps Cuba on this list, it harbours in its territory groups that organise, finance and carry out terrorist actions with the aim of subverting the revolutionary process.

This Monday, the Ministry of the Interior revealed details of an infiltration operation recently thwarted by specialised forces of that body, aimed at carrying out attacks against economic, social and military targets for destabilising purposes.

Some of those involved in the organisation, planning and financing of this action are included in the national list of people implicated in acts of terrorism against Cuba, among them Willy González, head of the paramilitary organisation Nueva Nación Cubana en Armas, based in Florida.

According to Colonel Víctor Álvarez, deputy head of the Specialised Body of the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation of the Ministry of the Interior, acts like this have been repeatedly reported to the US authorities without any action being taken.

According to analysts, the US government’s double standards in dealing with such a sensitive issue as terrorism expose the true essence of the policy with which successive US administrations have sought, for more than six decades, to overthrow the Cuban Revolution.
