Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parilla said that nothing can repair the damage done to his country’s families by the extreme measures taken by the United States based on lies.
“After misusing baseless accusations to take action against Cuba and backtracking on bilateral relations, the US intelligence community finally admits that there was no attack on their diplomats in Cuba or elsewhere,” the minister said on Twitter.
He emphasized that the group of Cuban experts, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation and the scientists who compiled the Jason report came to the same conclusion after a thorough investigation.
On Wednesday, March 1st, The Washington Post reported that US intelligence agencies had ruled out that mysterious ailments reported by US diplomats on the island in 2016 were caused by attacks by a foreign adversary, PL reported.
According to a digital version of the publication, citing officials familiar with the investigation, it is unlikely that an adversary with a secret weapon is behind the rare conditions.
Seven intelligence agencies were involved in reviewing approximately 1,000 cases of “abnormal health conditions,” a term the US government uses to describe a range of physical symptoms, including ringing in the ears accompanied by pressure in the head, nausea, aches and pains. and discomfort.
Five of them, he said, determined that it was “highly unlikely” that a foreign adversary was responsible for the symptoms, either as a result of deliberate actions such as directed energy weapons, or as a by-product of some other activity, including surveillance, electronics.
Officials said they found no evidence, including forensic information or geolocation data, to suggest that the opposing country used a directed form of energy such as radio waves or ultrasonic beams.
The symptoms felt by US diplomats were first reported at the US embassy in Havana in 2016, and although similar incidents were later described in India, Russia, Vietnam, and even Washington, there were only reprisals against Cuba.
