TEHRAN, Jan. 14 (MNA) – Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez thanked on Wednesday for the international solidarity and rejection of Cuba's inclusion on the list of states that sponsor terrorism.

On Twitter, Bruno Rodríguez also referred to the support by 'prominent members of the US Congress, religious organizations, Cuban emigration, and international institutions and personalities,' according to Prensa Latina. 

The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced in a statement the decision to include Cuba on the list of states that sponsor terrorism.

Following the statement, US Senate members, activists from the Marti Alliance, MEPs, presidents, regional integration blocs, political scientists, communist parties from different nations, among other personalities and institutions, expressed their rejection of Cuba´s inclusion on the list.
