Havana, May 12 (Prensa Latina) Dark interests are behind the campaign on the alleged Havana Syndrome, denounced today Johana Tablada, Deputy Director General of the U.S. Directorate of the Cuban Foreign Ministry.
No report or study disclosed until today in the United States, Cuba or the world provides scientific evidence that there were radiofrequency waves of great intensity in the area where the diplomats who reported health symptoms were located, said the official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Minrex).
The only ones who won with this story are the members of a minority and reactionary group of politicians desperate and willing to use any resource to try to impose and perpetuate the course of confrontation, lies and injustice in Washington’s policy against the Cuban people and the Americans themselves, she affirmed.
In statements to Prensa Latina, Tablada said that the group of experts from Cuba that investigated this issue stated and explained why the thesis exposed most recently is an ‘unlikely hypothesis, and certainly not a proven fact’ as the media and unidentified sources try to fix in people’s imagination.
She added that the ‘Cuban Academy of Sciences disagreed on this possibility, which it qualified as a speculation presented as one more hypothesis, not supported by arguments in the body of the published report of the U.S. Academies of Sciences’.
The Americans themselves cannot assure what is the cause of the reported symptoms and she criticized the absence of information requested to the government of Washington that limited their study.
The diplomat reiterated that the Academy of Sciences and the team of Cuban experts reject the politicization of the issue and recently reiterated the call for collaboration between both countries to solve the matter and establish the truth.
Tablada stressed that until today ‘the most concrete and factual thing we have seen is that symptoms were reported with such a diversity that even the State Department doctors explained, as well as the Cuban scientists, that so many elements cannot be attributed to a common cause.
The official recalled that the unfounded accusation against her country of the attacks served as a pretext for the withdrawal of most of the staff of the Washington Embassy in Havana, in 2017, coupled with an unprecedented sequence of actions of hostility and setbacks in relations between the two countries and peoples.
She stated that after the change of government in the White House we are facing a new cycle of articles and ‘leaks’ on the alleged existence of ‘attacks’, a word not used by the official spokespersons of the Washington government in their most recent statements.
She pointed out that the common denominator of this set of publications is ‘political speculation, manipulation and absence of primary sources and the misleading reference that assumes and presents as a true fact an alleged syndrome that was not proven by science’.
The Deputy Director General of the U.S. Directorate of Cuba’s Minrex noted that there is no such thing as ‘the Havana Syndrome’ outside of propaganda but we live in a world, she stressed, in which perceptions matter more than realities.
She said that the inquiries of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Ministry of the Interior (Minint) of Cuba were serious and conclusive in ruling out the existence of ultrasonic or infrasonic sonic attacks.
Tablada stressed that ‘Cuba has not doubted that there were health symptoms, it has investigated the issue from the police, medical and scientific sphere and has made many attempts and calls to cooperate by delivering information of its investigations to the U.S. government’.
Campaign against the truth
The diplomat concluded that the main victim of this whole saga seems to be again the truth.
‘The measures taken on the basis of unconfirmed speculation have not been reversed and the suffering they have caused to the Cuban people, families and bilateral and people-to-people relations has only been aggravated’, she said.
On the other hand, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently stated that agencies and departments across the federal government are working to address ‘unexplained health incidents’ that are sometimes reported by different agencies and did not occur in one place.
Marco Rubio, of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, insist on the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome’ despite Cuba’s denial, supported by scientific studies, which categorically distances itself from these actions.
As evidenced by analyses of various media, the truth is the first victim of this plot against Cuba.
