Georgian association demands removal of Cuba from US SSOT list

Tbilisi, Jun 28 (Prensa Latina) The Georgian-Cuban Friendship Association has firmly rejected Cuba's inclusion in Washington's State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT) list, Cuban Ambassador to this country, Carlos Valdes, informed on Friday.

The diplomat told Prensa Latina that the Friends of Solidarity of Georgia handed him a document signed by Pavle Jibuti, president of the said Friendship Association, which describes the drawing-up of that list as a selective mechanism of the United States against progressive countries.

Cuba’s inclusion in this list violates the principles of the United Nations Charter, human rights, and the prosperity of the Cuban people, states the document, which was addressed to the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) and the Cuban Embassy in Georgia.

The text points out that such behavior is a dangerous act of interference and seeks to destabilize Cuba’s internal order.

The note of the Georgian Friendship Association adds that Cuba does not sponsor terrorism and has been a victim of this scourge in the development of its revolutionary history; what is happening is illegal and dishonest.
