Dominicans demand Cuba’s removal from Washington’s SSOT list

Santo Domingo, May 30 (Prensa Latina) The Dominican Campaign of Solidarity with Cuba on Thursday called for unity among the peoples to demand Cuba's removal from Washington's State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT) list, which is a brutal measure by the Government of the United States.

We call on all governments and citizens of countries respectful of sovereignty and self-determination to demand that Cuba’s desire to work in peace for the sake of its development be respected, the Campaign said in a press release.

It warned that ‘the United States intends to play at false propaganda’ by labeling Cuba recently as one of the nations ‘not fully cooperating in the fight against terrorism,’ which does not mean the elimination of the trade restrictions imposed on that Caribbean country.

On that occasion, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez noted that ‘the United States has just admitted what is known to all: that Cuba fully cooperates with the efforts against terrorism.’

‘It (the US) should cease all political manipulation of the issue and end our arbitrary and unjust inclusion in the list of countries sponsoring terrorism,’ the foreign minister said on his X profile.

The Campaign denounced that Washington paradoxically keeps Cuba on the unilateral list of countries that allegedly sponsor terrorism, a genocidal measure that aggravates the impact of the suffocating economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on Cuba for more than six decades.

In addition to the above, 243 measures were implemented by the government of President Donald Trump, which are still in force and are affecting the people in a sensitive manner.

Rodriguez pointed out that Cuba has never practiced State terrorism, on the contrary, it has been a victim of it and ‘has had to defend itself from the espionage of a neighboring power (the US) that does not respect the sovereignty of the peoples.
