The head of state asserted that "the greatest proof of the empire's cynicism is to put the honorable name of Cuba on its list of sponsors of terrorism, when the terrorists responsible for the Barbados Crime lived and died in the United States without paying for their crimes." crimes".

In turn, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla published that Cuba commemorates the date in memory of the 3,478 dead and 2,099 people with disabilities, victims of terrorism encouraged from the United States. while he reaffirmed the position of “No To Terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.”
