Russia blasts US for blacklisting Cuba as terrorism sponsor


Moscow:
 “When Washington accuses Havana of sponsoring terrorists, isn’t it the very fake news that the United States is collectively fighting against? This is a lie that has been granted the official state status,” Maria Zakharova, the ministry’s spokesperson said on Friday, Xinhua news agency reported.

At her weekly press briefing, Zakharova called the US decision “an unconstructive move,” which clearly demonstrates Washington’s inability to pursue a consistent foreign policy based on objective realities.

By blacklisting Havana, the United States has also discredited itself in the eyes of everyone who is familiar with “the selfless work of Cuban doctors in dozens of countries around the world” amid the coronavirus pandemic, she added.

On Monday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement that Cuba was designated as a “State Sponsor of Terrorism” for “repeatedly providing support for acts of international terrorism in granting safe harbour to terrorists.”

“Cuba opposes terrorism: it has been a victim of this scourge, never a sponsor,” Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said on Twitter.
