The US State Department has recommended that Cuba be removed from the government’s official list of state sponsors of terror.
Cuba’s presence on the list has soured relations between the US and the island nation for decades.
Sudan, Syria and Iran are the only three other countries currently on the American government’s list.
The removal is something which Cuba demanded before allowing a US embassy to open in Havana.
The recommendation is subject to congressional review.
Cuba was placed on the terror list in 1982 during the Reagan administration.
