Cuban president, Raul Castro, sent condolences on Monday to the United States and the families of the victims following the Orlando nightclub shooting. 

Castro's statement was read by a Cuban news anchor on Cuban State T-V.

Part of his statement read, "I reiterate that Cuba rejects and condemns unequivocally all acts of terrorism in any place, under any circumstances and despite whatever the alleged motivations."

Castro's statement comes as the United States and Cuba work together to have warmer relations after President Obama's visit in March.
