The union group pointed out in a statement that including Cuba on the list implies the continuity of the highly aggressive and unilateral economic policies applied since the 1960s.
“Beyond constituting an infamy and an attempt to discredit the country, (…) it has effects on the banking-financial, commercial and service sectors, which have been significantly affected”, stated the Confederation who also added that the international community, including the United States, knows that Cuba maintains impeccable conduct in terms of rejecting terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
The institution´s document also expresses that, on the contrary, Cuba has been a victim of terrorism, including State terrorism, with acts such as the detonation of explosives, the use of chemical and biological weapons, the blowing up of a plane, assassination attempts, burning economic objectives, and attacks on Cuban embassies.
“The Inter-Union Confederation considers that it necessary and urgent that Cuba be excluded from the list of State sponsors of terrorism and that the blockade it is subjected to by the United States be ended. For this reason, it addresses the Spanish government, the European Union and the international community to act urgently (…),” it stated.
The declaration joins two previous ones with a similar profile from Comisiones Obreras and the General Union of Workers of Spain.
