Dominica calls for removal of Cuba on United States sponsors of terrorism list

STATEMENT

Roseau, Dominica- May 22, 2024: The Commonwealth of Dominica notes with concern the continued inclusion of the Republic of Cuba in the United States State Department State Sponsors of Terrorism list, which identifies governments that actively support violent non-state actors involved in terrorist activities.

The Commonwealth of Dominica firmly holds that there is no evidence of state-sponsored
terrorism acts being supported by the Government of Cuba and considers this an arbitrary
classification intended to justify the decades-long economic embargo imposed on Cuba by the United States of America.

Consequently, Dominica calls for the reversal of this unmerited and unjust listing of Cuba as a state which sponsors terrorism.
Dominica further restates its call for the normalizing of relations with Cuba and the lifting of
economic sanctions by the United States for enhanced peace, stability, and economic growth of the Cuban nation which has made tremendous contributions to the development and welfare of the Caribbean Region particularly in the areas of health, agriculture, and education.

The Commonwealth of Dominica stands in solidarity with Cuba in its condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, including acts that qualify as state-sponsored terrorism.
