STATE DEPARTMENT SAYS CUBA WON’T BE REMOVED FROM ITS LIST OF STATE SPONSORS OF TERRORISM

Fox News on May 1, 2013, published an AP report on the U.S. State Department saying it has no plans to remove Cuba from a list of state sponsors of terrorism when it issues an upcoming annual report on terrorism.

The decision announced by State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell is sure to ruffle feathers in Havana, which vehemently denies any links to terrorism.

Cuba has argued that its inclusion on the list is a political vendetta.

Ventrell says the State Department “has no current plans to remove Cuba” from the list. He adds that the annual report is never used to remove or add countries from the list.
