The anticipation will only continue to heighten as U.S. citizens wait for tourism travel in Cuba to be legalized. As a matter of fact, the possibility of the occasion grows with each passing day.
On Friday (May 29), the U.S. officially removed Cuba off its list of state sponsors of terrorism. According to TIME, “Secretary of State John Kerry has signed an order removing Cuba from the U.S. terrorism blacklist as part of the process of normalizing relations between the Cold War foes.”
The step comes as officials from the countries continue to hash out details of restoring full diplomatic relations, including opening embassies in Washington and Havana and returning ambassadors to the two countries. Friday’s removal of Cuba from the terrorism list had been a key Cuban demand.
