President Obama meets with Cuban President Raul Castro at the Summit of the Americas

President Obama has made a proposal to remove Cuba from the list of state sponsored terrorism, according to the White House.

The president officially sent the necessary report and certifications to Congress on Tuesday, according to Obama’s National Security Council via Twitter.

“As the president has said, we will continue to have differences with the Cuban government, but our concerns over a wide range of Cuba’s policies and actions fall outside the criteria that is relevant to whether to rescind Cuba’s designation as a state sponsor of terrorism,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.

The expected move comes after a historic meeting between Obama and Cuban president Raul Castro. The meeting was held in Panama at the Summit of the Americas over the weekend.
