CUBA TELLS US: WE’RE PROBING SONIC ‘ATTACKS’ ON US DIPLOMATS
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez reiterated his country's willingness to maintain effective cooperation in the investigation regarding the alleged health incidents involving US diplomats in Havana.
On his Twitter account, the foreign minister pointed out that the US government is refusing to share information, “while speculations continue without scientifically and politically motivated evidence,” Prensa Latina reported.
On February 17, 2017, the Department of State and the US Embassy in Cuba informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Cuban diplomatic headquarters in Washington about alleged occurrence of sonic attacks between November 2016 and February 2017. With that justification, they practically closed services at the US diplomatic headquarters in Havana, forcing Cubans to turn to third States for their procedures; while they expelled duly accredited officials from the Cuban Embassy in Washington.
Cuban researchers undertook an exhaustive study on the allegations and they found that there was no deliberate attack on US diplomatic personnel at all.
