U.S. closing in on recommendation to remove Cuba from state terrorism list
By Matt Spetalnick and Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department is closing in on a decision to recommend removal of Cuba from its list of countries accused of sponsoring terrorism, days before President Barack Obama attends a regional summit with his Cuban counterpart Raul Castro. Obama ordered the review after*announcing a diplomatic breakthrough with Havana on Dec. 17 and has vowed to act quickly once he receives the recommendation, which would mark a significant move toward ending more than five decades of estrangement. A U.S. official told Reuters the State Department could send its conclusions to Obama this week, calling for the Communist-ruled island to be taken off the blacklist. Cuba's presence on the state-sponsored terror list has been a major stumbling block in efforts to restore relations and re-establish embassies.
