Adams welcomes further progress in US-Cuba relations
Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has welcomed the latest moves by the Obama administration to restore diplomatic ties with Cuba.
Mr Adams’ remarks follow the US decision to remove Cuba from the list of "state sponsors of terrorism".
Gerry Adams said:
"I welcome yesterday's meeting between US Secretary of State John Kerry and Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez in Panama and the fact that the US is to remove Cuba from a list of 'state sponsors of terrorism'.
“These developments are further evidence of what can be achieved through dialogue and mutual trust.
“Like many people across the world I would hope the new and more positive relationship between both countries can lead to the removal of the blockade of Cuba.”
