International organizations call for removal of Cuba from US terrorism list

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and the “Group of 77 and China” have jointly issued a declaration urging the immediate exclusion of Cuba from the United States’ list of state sponsors of terrorism.

The statement also demanded a halt of “unilateral coercive measures” targeting the Cuban people.

The statement denounced the inclusion of Cuba on the terrorism list as unjust and without basis, describing it as a pretext for imposing additional unilateral sanctions that have resulted in unprecedented levels of economic, commercial and financial blockade against the Cuban population.

It urged the U.S. government to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade that has hindered comprehensive development in Cuba for over six decades.

Founded in 1961, the Non-Aligned Movement comprises 121 member countries. China became an observer in the movement in 1992. The Group of 77, established in 1964, is an intergovernmental organization of developing countries aimed at enhancing solidarity and cooperation to promote economic and social development. It currently has more than 130 member states.
