Cuban Otolaryngologists and foreign specialists insisted once again on the falseness of the supposed acoustic attacks committed in this capital against US diplomats, local media reported.
According to the Cubadebate website, at a scientific workshop on endoscopic surgery organized in Havana with the participation of experts from the United States, Mexico and Austria, the Cuban Society of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery issued a statement to reject the aforementioned aggression.
When reading the document, the president of the society, Antonio Paz, noted that 'Cuban and US otolaryngologists have maintained close academic collaboration, in an environment of ethics, transparency and friendship.'
For this reason, he added, they reject the accusations about the supposed sonic attacks and urge the pertinent authorities to show medical evidence that supports the imputation.
In addition, the statement adds that the group views with deep concern the latest measures by the United States government, as these damage the free exchange between technical professionals and scientists from both countries.
On the subject, Nadia Caballero, US otorhinolaryngologist and rhinologist at the Chicago Nasal and Sinus Center, commented that unfortunately measures were taken without thinking or taking into account the medical evidence.
'As a doctor I believe that there is not enough scientific evidence to make these conclusions,' said Caballero, also co-director of the workshop.
For his part, Cuban doctor Adolfo Hidalgo, head of the Department of Otolaryngology at the National Center for Minimally Access Surgery, announced the next conduction of an exchange with 10 recognized US otolaryngologists who challenge the defamatory campaigns against Cuba.
