U.S. says Cuba not cooperating fully against terrorism

On Friday, the Biden administration placed Cuba back on a short list of countries that did not fully cooperate in its fight against terrorism, further stoking tensions with its longtime rival.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken, in the final assessment published Friday in the US Federal Register, named Cuba among five countries, along with Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and Syria, that the United States says failed to comply with Your expectations.

The Department of State is required by law to provide this list annually to the United States Congress.

The US assessment is almost identical to the one issued by the Biden administration a year ago, which upheld the determination of the Trump administration.

A US State Department spokesman said his decision on Friday was the result of a review of “counterterrorism objectives with that country and a realistic assessment of its capabilities.”

The decision follows the Biden administration’s move on Monday to partially roll back some Trump-era restrictions on remittances and travel to the communist-ruled island, moves that Havana has criticized as scant in detail, politically driven and insufficient. .

Tensions on both sides have boiled over from signs that Cuba, along with Nicaragua and the Nicolás Maduro dictatorship, could be excluded from the US-hosted Summit of the Americas next month.

A possible boycott by a growing number of leaders, including Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has warned of the risk of embarrassment for President Joe Biden.

Former US President Donald Trump separately designated Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism just before he left office, a separate move from the insufficient cooperation assessment.

The Biden administration said the state sponsor designation is still under review.
