The order to remove Cuba from the US terrorism blacklist was signed by Secretary of State John Kerry. This is the latest step in improving diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba. Earlier this year, the US relaxed its travel restrictions with Cuba, making it easier for US citizens to visit the Caribbean island nation.

Current countries on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list include Iran, Sudan and Syria.
