Cuba again denies acoustic attacks against U.S. and Canadian diplomats

The specialists argue that it could not be feasible to have directed sonic, acoustic or microwave attacks against those affected.

Cuba today revealed the content of its own investigations. They investigated into the health incidents for which dozens of U.S. and Canadian diplomats and officials left Havana. Then, once again rejected any acoustic attack.

Finally, Cuban experts concluded that “there is no evidence attached to the science that justifies the term attack,” said the U.S. director of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Carlos Fernández de Cossío.

Up to 26 U.S. and 14 Canadian officials and diplomats stationed in Havana, have presented different symptoms such as:

  • Brain lesions.
  • Dizziness.
  • Headaches.
  • Lack of concentration.

Symptoms for reasons that are still unknown.

For this reason, both embassies have reduced their personnel to a minimum. Also, some US authorities have described these incidents as acoustic “attacks”, which have caused strong tensions.

The true reasons

At today’s press conference in Havana, a group of Cuban specialists revealing for the first time the content of their research carried out in parallel to that carried out in the United States.

Supported by their own data, the Cuban specialists argued that it could not have been feasible to have directed sonic, acoustic or microwave attacks. They afirm that the symptoms they present would not correspond to that alleged cause either.

In addition, they minimized the importance of the disorders suffered by U.S. and Canadian officials by considering that they could largely be due to pre-existing conditions. For example, psychological causes such as the “influence of social networks, government, physicians, and the media,” according to their report.

Then, they accused the United States of not having cooperated enough in the investigation. On the other hand, with Canada the collaboration is more fluid although without tangible results at the moment.

For his part, Fernández de Cossío directly accused Donald Trump’s government of “manipulating” the information and issuing “unfounded accusations” to blame Havana for the alleged attacks.

As a result, the head of relations with the United States reiterated that Cuba “guarantees the security of all diplomatic missions and their personnel”. Also, he reiterated its willingness to cooperate in discovering the origin of the mysterious incidents. It continues to be an unknown.
