Jittery US-Cuba Ties : Cuba Back On U.S. Terrorism Sponsor List

The US has placed Cuba back on a list of state sponsors of terrorism, citing the communist country's backing of Venezuela.

President Donald Trump's Administration made the announcement just days before he leaves the White House.

President-elect Joe Biden, who takes office on 20 January, has previously said he wants to improve US-Cuban Relations.

Cuba called the move "Political opportunism".

Mr Biden has said he is seeking closer ties between the long-term adversaries but Mr Trump's decision is likely to hinder a quick repair of relations.
