In its annual terrorism report, "Patterns of Global Terrorism," issued on 30 April 1999, the State Department "modestly softened language on Iran ... Whereas last year the State Department called Iran 'the most active state sponsor of terrorism in 1997,' the new report said only that Iran 'in 1998 continued to be involved in the planning and execution of terrorist acts'.... Despite the altered language, Iran was still one of seven governments branded in the report ... as state sponsors of terrorism.... Other countries in that category are Cuba, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan and Syria. The list has not changed since August 1993. Afghanistan would have been included, a senior State Department official said, but it is not considered a functioning state."
