    One step closer: US drops Cuba from its list of state sponsors of terrorism

    On April 8, 2015, Kerry completed the review and recommended President Obama that Cuba no longer be designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism.

    The United States on Friday formally dropped Cuba from its list of state sponsors of terrorism, the US State Department said in a statement. The removal of Cuba from the US terrorism list eliminates an obstacle toward restoring diplomatic ties between the United States and the communist-led Caribbean island state after 54 years.
