Communiqué of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean states on the inclusion of Cuba in the list of states sponsors of terrorism

The Community of Latin American and Caribbean States has learnt with concern of the inclusion of Cuba in the List of States Sponsors of Terrorism published by the State Department of the Unites States of America.

In this regard, CELAC recalls paragraph 24 of the Santiago Declaration, adopted by the I Summit of the Community held on 27 and 28 January, 2013, which states: “Strongly reject the unilateral and illegitimate assessments, lists and certifications made by some developed countries which affect countries of the region, in particular, those referring to terrorism, drug trafficking, human trafficking and other related measures”.

Likewise, it recalls the “Special Communiqué to Support the Fight Against Terrorism in all its Forms and Manifestations”, also adopted in the I CELAC Summit, which says: “Reject the unilateral elaboration of blacklists accusing States of allegedly supporting and sponsoring terrorism, which is inconsistent with International Law”.

Hence, in light of the documents adopted by the Heads of State and Government in its I Summit, the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) requests the Government of the United States of America to put an end to this unilateral practice. | Cubaminrex
