PANAMA CITY, April 11. /TASS/. U.S. President Barack Obama’s intention to take Cuba off the list of states sponsors of terrorism is a positive step forward in bilateral relations, Cuba’s President Raul Castro said at the 7th Summit of the Americas underway in Panama.
"Barack Obama had no responsibility for this [Cuba’s blockade]," Castro said calling the current U.S. president an honest man.
"I again assure President Obama that we are set to participate in the dialogue and work on bilateral relations as the civilised world takes it," Castro said. "The U.S. president’s words that Cuba should be removed from the list of states sponsors of terrorism are a positive step forward. But our country should have never been on that list."
At the same time, Castro noted that "Havana will protect the ideas which have come to the Cubans through sufferings and dangers."
"We will continue modernisation of Cuba’s economy so as to promote socialism and to strive for justice for the Cubans," the president said.
