UN: US expels two Cuban diplomats
The United States announced last thursday the expulsion of two cuban diplomats on his territory. Both officials at the United Nations are accused of undermining national security.
The U.S. State Department has decided to expel two diplomats from its territory from the Cuban representation at the United Nations. And for good reason, these two diplomats allegedly engaged in activities that undermined national security. “This decision is due to their attempts to conduct influence operations against the United States. We take all attempts against U.S. national security seriously and will continue to investigate others who may abuse their residency privileges,” the State Department said in a statement relayed. by Sputnik.
In a tweeter, State Department spokesman Morgan Ortagus added that members of the Cuban mission to the United Nations are also forced to stay in Manhattan. But U.S. authorities have not released the names of the two diplomats in question. In Havana, there was a strong reaction to the decision. Bruno Rodriguez, the head of Cuban diplomacy, talks about an unjustified decision. “I categorically reject the unjustified expulsion of two members of Cuba’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations and the tightening of travel restrictions for Cuban diplomats and their families,” the foreign minister wrote. Already under U.S. sanctions, Cuba sees this measure as a way to push the nail.
