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.
Statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba
The Ministry of Foreign Relations condemns in the strongest and most absolute terms the fraudulent qualification of Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism, announced by the United States government in a cynical and hypocritical act.

The Honorable Mike Pompeo
Secretary of State
Dear Secretary Pompeo,
Press reports suggest that you are considering adding Cuba once again to the list of “state sponsors of terrorism,” and we write to express our strong opposition.
The Standing Committee created by the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), has released in December 2020 the report “An Assessment of Illness in U.S. Government Employees and Their Families at Overseas Embassies”. The illness in the title refers primarily to health complaints reported by US personnel deployed in Cuba and to a lesser degree in China.
