ABSTRACT

Cuba and the State Sponsors of Terrorism List [Updated May 12, 2005]   [open pdf - 62KB]

Cuba remains on the State Departments terrorism list with five other countries: Iran, Libya, Syria, Sudan, and North Korea. According to the State Departments Country Reports on Terrorism 2004 (issued in April 2005), Cubas actions and public statements run contrary to the spirit of the U.N. conventions on terrorism that it has signed. The report asserts that in 2004 'Cuba continued to actively oppose the U.S.-led coalition prosecuting the global war on terrorism.' The State Department report asserted that Cuba continued to provide limited support to designated foreign terrorist organizations and to provide safe haven for terrorists and for over 70 U.S. fugitives from justice who continue to live on the island.
