Cuba reiterated today that the United States gave late, scattered and insufficient information on the alleged health damage suffered by US diplomats here, an incident that is currently used to expel Cuban officials from USA.
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla said that given this situation, the Cuban authorities asked the US Embassy for further details to carry out a deep and serious investigation.
The US Embassy only gave some interesting data on the alleged incidents after February 21st, when President Raul Castro Ruz personally reiterated Charge d'affaires Jeffrey DeLaurentis the importance of sharing more information and boost cooperation between the authorities in charge, from the two countries.
Rodriguez Parrilla said that even in the meeting he held on September 26th with secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the latter did not add a sole detail to the investigation into the incidents.
Cuban authorities took immediate actions with seriousness and professionalism to clarify the situation since the US Embassy said on February 17th, 2017 that such alleged incidents were affecting diplomats and their families since November 2016, causing them damages.
He said that Cuban specialists started an exhaustive and prioritized investigation ordered by the highest level of the Government, while measures were tightened to protect diplomats, their families and their houses.
