Washington (CNN)The State Department has sent a recommendation to the White House that Cuba be removed from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list, paving the way for the White House to announce its intent to de-list Cuba as early as Thursday, two administration officials tell CNN.

In making the recommendation, the State Department has certified Cuba has not provided support to terrorist groups within the last 6 months.
