Canadian Embassy in Havana designated ‘unaccompanied post’ Print E-mail

Declaration of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba

The Government of Canada has made a decision to appoint its embassy in Havana as a mission without accompanying family members, as a result, as has been stated, of the symptoms of health involvement reported by some of its diplomats in 2017.

Cuba confirms that, following a rigorous investigation carried out by a group of high-rating experts, the slightest evidence has not been found to explain the suffering reported by Canadian Diplomats, and no indication that any such attack or incident occurred In Cuban territory, or the symptoms reported are associated with acoustic or other action carried out by a person or group of persons against others.

According to the Canadian government's statement, there have been no reports of new incidents over six months ago, the cause remains unknown, there is no evidence to suggest that Canadian travellers to Cuba are at risk and environmental studies do not point to one who can identify himself as a cause, all of which coincides with the observations of the Cuban experts.

The Cuban government respects the decision taken by the government of Canada but considers it to be devoid of justification. It fully confirms that Cuba is a secure, stable and healthy country for its inhabitants and for the nearly five million foreigners who visit it every year, including more than one million Canadians, and where the protection of the diplomatic staff of all Countries are guaranteed.

Cuba will continue to work constructively with the government of Canada, as so far, in close communication through diplomatic channels, through cooperation between the relevant law enforcement agencies and with the support of experts at the highest level in the purpose to find explanations about the suffering reported. To this end, it has reiterated the invitation to medical specialists from Cuba and Canada to exchange information on available information and on the basis of the most stringent respect for the personal privacy of the persons concerned.
