Just nine days before Republican President Donald Trump leaves office, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo It was reported that Cuba was placed on the protection list of American fugitives and Colombian rebel leaders. The head of US diplomacy also stated that Havana supports Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, which has allowed him – according to his assessment – to remain in power.

“With this act, we will hold the Cuban government accountable once again and send a clear message that the Castro regime must stop supporting international terrorism and sabotaging American justice,” Pompeo said in a statement.
