HAVANA, Cuba (ACN)-- US religious leaders have asked President Barack Obama to exclude Cuba from the annual list of countries Washington considers to be sponsors of terrorism and urged him to normalize relations with the Caribbean nation.
“Cuba is not a state sponsoring terrorism and its inclusion on that list is widely considered a mistake that dates back to old political tactics,” asserted Reverend John McCullough, president of the World Service of Churches and leaders of protestant, orthodox, Catholic and ecumenical institutions in a letter, the Granma newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The White House kept Cuba on the list of state sponsors of terrorism list again this year, although it acknowledged once again that there are no indications that Cuban authorities provide violent groups with weapons or paramilitary training.
Likewise, the clerics urged Obama to begin talks,“direct and of high level,” with the Cuban government and take concrete measures to improve bilateral relations.
They also urged the US president to use his executive authority to eliminate all limitations on people-to-people contact.

The people of Cuba pose no threat to the US. Our government poses much more of a threat to them.
