Cuba rejects slanderous US references on terrorism

Havana, Dec 2 (Prensa Latina) Cuba today rejected the slanderous references made by the United States Department of State against the Caribbean country, in its most recent report on terrorism for the year 2022.

In a statement published on its website, the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs assured the elements exposed in the aforementioned report dishonestly recycle the pretexts used to justify the presence of the island on the “arbitrary and discredited” list of countries who allegedly sponsor terrorism.

The Foreign Ministry stressed the list serves to impose measures of economic coercion against countries with which the US Government has political disagreements.

“This arbitrary classification of Cuba is the object of overwhelming rejection at the international level and by numerous political and social organizations within the United States itself,” the text stressed.

Likewise, he points out that US government authorities have sufficient information to verify the firm and clean commitment of the Caribbean nation in confronting this scourge and proof of this, he adds, are the official bilateral exchanges carried out between the two countries on the specific issue of terrorism.

“Cuba’s commitment is absolute and categorical against all terrorist acts, methods and practices, in all their forms and manifestations, by whoever, against whomever, and wherever they are perpetrated, whatever their motivations, including those where governments are directly or indirectly involved,” the note adds.

The island, stated the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will maintain its efforts in the fight against terrorism, of which it has been a victim, at the cost of 3,478 deaths and 2,099 disabled people.

According to the statement, all of these victims are a consequence “of actions organized, financed and perpetrated fundamentally from the territory of the United States by individuals and organizations that operate there with the tolerance, complicity and protection of the government of that country.”
