The Inter-Union Confederation has expressed its support for the agreement adopted at the XXVIII Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State held in the Dominican Republic on March 25.

The agreement rejects the inclusion of Cuba in the list of state sponsors of terrorism and requests its exclusion from the list.

The inclusion of Cuba in the list supposes the continuity of the strongly aggressive and unilateral economic policies that have been applied since the 1960s.

The inclusion in this list has effects on the banking-financial, commercial and service sectors, which have been significantly affected.

Cuba has signed the 19 international agreements for the prevention of terrorism and has never participated in the organization, financing or execution of terrorist acts against any country, nor has its territory been used for this purpose.

On the contrary, Cuba has been a victim of terrorism, including state terrorism.

The Inter-Union Confederation considers that it is necessary and urgent that Cuba be excluded from the list of state sponsors of terrorism

and that the blockade to which it is subjected by the United States be ended.

For this reason, it addresses the Spanish government, the European Union and the international community to act urgently and firmly before the US administration to remove Cuba from the list and promulgate the termination of said policy.
