On May 29, 2018, the Embassy of the United States in Havana
informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba
that, on May 27, an official of that Embassy had reported health
symptoms as a result of “undefined sounds” in her
place of residence.
Immediately, the Cuban Government gave top priority to the
matter and officially requested the Diplomatic Mission of the
United States that specialized medical doctors and investigators
respectively, could interview said official.
The thorough and urgent investigation carried out in the
residence premises found no indication of any kind of sound
capable of causing health damages.
As in the cases reported before, the Cuban authorities and
specialists have had no access to the official.
Cuba has reaffirmed publicly and officially its willingness to
cooperate in earnest in the joint search for answers, the
elucidation and solution to the alleged facts.
After more than a year of research by the specialized agencies
and experts from Cuba and the United States, it is confirmed
that there is no credible hypothesis or conclusions adhered to
science that justify the actions taken by the government of the
United States against Cuba to the detriment of the bilateral
relationship and with obvious political motivations.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has also taken note of the
announcement made by the Secretary of State, on the past June 5,
about the establishment of a Joint Task Force to respond to what
he characterized as “unexplained health incidents to the
personnel stationed overseas”, specifically in Cuba and the
People’s Republic of China.
The announcement states verbatim that “the precise nature
of the injuries suffered by the affected personnel, and whether
a common cause exists for all cases, has not yet been
Guarantying the health and security of Cubans and foreign
citizens, has been, is and will be a priority that distinguishes
the Cuban nation. It is widely known that the Government
rigorously complies with its responsibilities in the attention
and protection of the Diplomatic Corps.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterates that no evidence
whatsoever has been presented of the alleged incidents and
maintains its unwavering commitment to cooperate with the
authorities from the United States to achieve the elucidation of
this situation and the best medical attention to the persons
Cuba is and will continue to be a safe, stable and attractive
