Vietnam welcomed the US’s removal of Cuba from its list of state sponsors of terrorism, said Vietnamese Foreign Ministry’s Spokesman Le Hai Binh at the ministry’s regular press conference on April 16.

While responding to reporters’ queries on Vietnam’s point of view on the issue, Binh said that the removal will be an important step as the two countries are normalising their bilateral relations.
