Havana, September 4 (RHC)-- The Cuban government rejected today a new version regarding alleged health incidents involving U.S. diplomats in Havana. Reports in the U.S. now point to the supposed use of microwave radiation in those incidents.
In an interview with Granma newspaper, Director General for United States in the Cuba Foreign Ministry, Carlos Fernández de Cossio, said that this new theory does not support the multiplicity and diversity of symptoms that, according to the U.S. State Department, those affected had suffered.
“They first started the theory of sonic attacks, which did not stand the analysis of the scientific community and that of the police investigation carried out by both countries. Then for a brief span of time, they resorted to the hypothesis of a viral attack, that fell through given its lack of sustenance. For months now The Cuban diplomat said now a new theory is being circulated via the US media that says it could all be “waves” emitted using microwave tools.
“What has been demonstrated is that which scientists from Cuba, the United States and other countries have supported, and which the Cuban government has been saying all along--that it is false that attacks may have existed, and the US government knows this well, because they have had multiple ways of checking it,” stated Carlos Fernandez de Cossio.
“There has been no attack or deliberate act against any of their diplomats, and the State Department knows this. The use of the term "attack" entails a deliberate political manipulation with a view to a predetermined agenda, and it hurts both countries,” said the Director for United States in the Cuban Foreign Ministry.
