The Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX) issued a statement on Monday criticizing the “attitude” of the US government after the alleged attack on its embassy in Washington.
In the statement, the Cuban government warned “about the message sent about the behavior of the US government in the face of threats of this type against the Cuban diplomatic headquarters, but also against other countries in the city of Washington DC.”
Likewise, it said that the event, described by the Cuban government as a “terrorist attack,” shows “the use of a double standard of the alleged commitment of the US government against terrorism.”
The MINREX statement recalled that the man was arrested, in April 2020, after shooting multiple times with an assault rifle at the same Embassy “He is still awaiting trial and the United States government refuses to classify the event as a terrorist act.”
“The Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations establishes the special obligation of the United States, as a receiving State, to take all appropriate measures to protect mission areas against intrusion or damage and to prevent peace of the mission to be interrupted or violated. their dignity,” added MINREX, who “hopes” that the US government will act in accordance with this convention.
This Sunday, the Foreign Minister of the Cuban regime, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, reported that an individual threw two Molotov cocktails at the building.
The head of MINREX pointed out that no one was injured in the incident.
Ruler Miguel Díaz-Canel, for his part, blamed alleged attack on “haters” an appellation by which the regime identifies its opponents.
