Cuba, Spain in talks over ETA fugitives: US

Cuba and Spain are in talks to resolve a long-standing dispute over two members of the Basque separatist ETA group given shelter by the Caribbean island nation, a US official said Wednesday. The move was among assurances given to Washington by Havana as the Obama administration seeks to strike Cuba from its list of state sponsors of terrorism. The White House announced Tuesday that following a lengthy review by the State Department, President Barack Obama is planning to remove Cuba from the blacklist which has hampered its access to the US and global banking system and stymied arms exports and sales. “The Cuban government provided the United States in writing official assurances… that it will not support acts of international terrorism,” acting deputy State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said.
