The Trump administration plans to return Cuba to the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, a person familiar with the matter said on Monday, a move that could complicate any efforts by the incoming Biden administration to revive Obama-era detente with Havana.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who could announce Cuba’s designation as soon as Monday with just nine days left in office for President Donald Trump, is expected to tie the decision to Cuba’s long-time harboring of U.S. fugitives as well as Colombian rebel leaders, the source said.

He may also cite Communist-ruled Cuba’s support for Venezuelan socialist President Nicolas Maduro, the source told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
