‘Unjustified and unwarranted!’ Caricom demands reversal of US position on Cuba

“[…] Cuba’s international conduct does not in any way warrant that designation. This further attack on the country adversely affects its international standing and its social, human and economic development and is another misguided action—in addition to the unproductive, unnecessary and illegal financial and economic embargo already imposed on this Caribbean nation by the United States…”

The following is a press statement from Caricom on the United States administration’s decision to place Cuba on a list of state sponsors of terrorism:

The Caribbean Community (Caricom) denounces the unilateral declaration by the outgoing United States administration to designate Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Cuba’s international conduct does not in any way warrant that designation. This further attack on the country adversely affects its international standing and its social, human and economic development and is another misguided action—in addition to the unproductive, unnecessary and illegal financial and economic embargo already imposed on this Caribbean nation by the United States.

Caricom calls for the immediate review and reversal of these unjustified actions taken in regard to Cuba and looks forward to the United States moving towards normalising relations with Cuba.
