The Trump administration has included Cuba in the list of countries that are considered state sponsors of terrorism. This was announced by U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo.
“The State Department has listed Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism for repeatedly supporting acts of international terrorism by providing a safe haven for terrorists,” the report said.
As previously reported, the U.S. State Department is considering adding Cuba to the list of countries sponsoring terrorism. The decision will be made by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. If this happens, sanctions will automatically be imposed on Havana. President-elect Joe Biden has repeatedly criticized Trump’s policy toward the island. He will have to go through a process of reviewing the list, and that is not the only thing that will cloud the start of his presidency.
