Havana: Cuba has welcomed U.S. President Barack Obama’s move to drop Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism. The terror designation of Cuba was the major stumbling block for the efforts to mend ties between the two countries.
On Tuesday Obama notified the Congress of his ‘intent to rescind’ Cuba’s inclusion on the black list after a lengthy review launched late last year.
The Congress can oppose the move within 45 days, otherwise it will go ahead. If it is removed, it will remove a key hurdle to renewing U.S diplomatic relations with the Communist Cuba.
