The mysterious sonic attack on officials of the United States Embassy in Havana arrives at the United Nations. Cuba, categorically asserted its foreign Minister to the plenary of the General Assembly, is not responsible. "He has never perpetrated or perpetrated actions of this nature, nor permitted or allowed his territory to be used by third parties for that purpose," he reiterated.
The Chancellor said it would be unfortunate if Washington tried to politicize this matter. The Secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, indicated days ago that he considered closing the diplomatic delegation in Cuba for this risk to the health of its officials. The representative of the Cuban Government insists that his country "complies with all rigour and seriousness" its obligations with the Vienna Convention, "No exceptions".
The investigation of the alleged acoustic attack is still underway, he explained, and is taking into consideration technical data provided by the US. "So far there is no evidence to confirm the causes and origin of health conditions that have been reported by the American diplomats and their families, "said the minister, who called for effective cooperation from the US authorities.
The incident takes place in a moment of increasing tension. The Chancellor denounced the "hardening" of the economic and financial blockade by the administration that presides Donald Trump. He said in this sense that he only responds to the interests of a very small group of Cuban exiles in South Florida. "Any strategy that attempts to destroy the Cuban Revolution will fail," he opened.
Bruno Rodríguez also condemned the US being accusing Cuba of violating human rights. "We will not accept lessons from anyone," he said, qualifying as "disrespectful" statements that Donald Trump launched from that same Tribune last Tuesday. "He has No authority to judge our country," he insisted by setting examples of police brutality.
Vision supremacist the minister harshly criticized the message of the President of the United States last Tuesday before the General assembly. He accused him of "distorting" history, of "manipulating" the concepts of sovereignty and security and of having a "absurd ignorance" about the functioning of the United Nations. Likewise, he said that the construction of walls is cruel, violates human rights and does not solve the causes of immigration.
"Patriotism invoked in Trump's speech embodies a supremacist vision," he insisted, remembering that the Republican won the election without achieving the majority of popular votes. He did say at the conclusion that Cuba is willing to continue negotiating pending issues, to redirect the bilateral relationship with the US, which is deteriorating. "We can cooperate and live together," added.
