Statements to the press by the director general of the United States of MINREX, Carlos Fernández de Cossío, on the decision of the United States government to include Cuba on the list of states sponsors of terrorism.

As explained yesterday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned in firm and absolute terms the qualification of Cuba as a country sponsor of terrorism by the United States government and the inclusion of our country in a list of the State Department.The reasons are various. In the first place, Cuba is not a sponsor of terrorism. That is known to the President of the United States. That is known to the Secretary of State, who deliberately lied yesterday when making the qualification.
