The United States has designated Cuba as a “state sponsor of terrorism”, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced, the latest move in the final days of the Trump administration that observers say will complicate President-elect Joe Biden’s foreign policy plans. Al Jazeera reports that in a statement on Monday, Pompeo said the US was designating Cuba “for repeatedly providing support for acts of international terrorism in granting safe harbour to terrorists” while also accusing Cuba of asserting “malign interference in Venezuela and the rest of the Western Hemisphere”. Cuba’s foreign minister condemned the move while the country’s top diplomat for US affairs argued that it was in fact the US which had supported terrorist acts in Cuba.
