Cuba’s inclusion on State Sponsors of Terrorism list is absurd

Fernando-Gonzalez-Llort
Havana, Oct 6 (Prensa Latina) The Hero of the Republic of Cuba, Fernando Gonzalez Llort, on Friday described as "an absurd political decision, rejected worldwide" Cuba's inclusion on Washington's State Sponsors of Terrorism list.

After pointing out that Cuba has been the victim of numerous acts of terrorism promoted by the United States, he added that the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by Washington on the Cuban people “has a criminal and genocidal nature.”

González Llort, who is the president of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), spoke at an event commemorating the mid-air explosion of a Cubana de Aviación aircraft 47 years ago off the coast of Barbados, where 57 Cubans, 11 Guyanese and four Koreans were killed.

He stressed that the so-called Barbados crime was added to a long list of terrorist acts against Cuba, promoted, financed and sustained over time from the United States “by those who seek to perpetuate the escalation of hatred against the Cuban Revolution.”

The event, organized by the Guyanese Embassy in Havana, was attended by several Caribbean diplomats, who listened to a message from former Guyanese President Donald Ramotar, who said that “much of the thinking, organization and participants of that brutal terrorist act is still a secret of the CIA in Washington.”

He recalled that hatred against Cuba dates back to the Triumph of the Revolution in 1959. “They did everything to destroy the Revolution: economic sabotage, political slander and covert military adventures,” Ramotar stressed.
