Washington, Apr 30 – United States unveiled today its annual list of countries considered sponsors of terrorism, although it protects and supports with funds and weapons to violent groups to destabilize many governments in the world.
The controversial report of the Department of State, relative to 2013, points to several nations because they allegedly shelter individuals linked with radical formations.
Despite the growing international rejection, United States kept Cuba on the list although it admitted once again there are no indications that the authorities in Havana provides weapons or paramilitary training to violent formations.
Washington also recognized the mediating role of the government of the Antillean nation in the peace process in Colombia.
The U.S. Department of State every year issues that black list since December 1979 and the included countries are subject to economic sanctions such as the surveillance of exports, restrictions on financial aid and blocking loans in banks, among other measures.
But U.S. officials state Washington is one of the leading suppliers of ammunition and money to the armed opposition of Syria, to the rebels involved in the conflict in Mali and Libya, as well as to the ultra-nationalists in Ukraine.
