COUNTRIES IDENTIFIED AS SUPPORTING INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM

 

Since 1995, the US Department of State has been reporting on the worldwide situation regarding international terrorism. Each year, a report is published that provides information on a country by country basis on the state of terrorism and the financing of terrorism in that country including the legislation, law enforcement, and border security.  The US State Department also maintains a list of perceived state sponsors of terrorism (currently North Korea, Iran, Sudan and Syria), and safe havens of terrorism (a broader list that includes regions or areas of countries that are subject to ongoing acts of terrorism).
