Cuba

Cuba has condemned international terrorism, which it distinguishes from national liberation movements, and did not protest at the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay (technically US territory by a treaty predating Castro).

But it did not support the American response. Fidel Castro called the war on terrorism “worse than the original attacks, militaristic and fascist”. Cuba remained on the US State Department list of states “sponsoring terrorism” on the grounds that it harboured a number of Latin American and other exiles from groups named by Washington as terrorist.

The political reality on both sides meant that there has been no rapprochement between the United States and Cuba and none is likely at the moment.
