The US Department of the Treasury has removed 45 Cuban companies, individuals and vessels from a sanctions list on Tuesday as part of its regular review, a Treasury official told Sputnik.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US Treasury Department publishes the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list to identify individuals and companies subject to sanctions for their role in working for or on behalf of countries targeted with US sanctions.

“While these removals are not related to the recent changes to our Cuba sanctions program and rather reflect the Office of Foreign Asset Control’s consistent effort to review and update its Specially Designated Nationals list, these de-listings are in line with the President’s Cuba policy,” the Treasury official said.

The list also includes terrorists and narcotics traffickers.

US President Barack Obama announced in December 2014 that Washington would normalize relations with Havana, ease travel and trade restrictions on the island country and reopen a US embassy.
