US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has removed Cuba from the State Department’s short list of countries that it deems less than fully cooperative against violent groups.

The US State Department made the announcement in a statement on Wednesday.

It said Mr. Blinken had found that Cuban and US law enforcement were again working together on counter-terrorism and other efforts.

The State Department, in compliance with US laws on arms exports, maintains a list of countries perceived as not cooperating fully on counter-terrorism.

It kept North Korea, Syria, Iran and Venezuela on the list in Wednesday’s rulings.
