Cuba denied any allegations, stressing it would never allow “its territory to be used by third parties with that purpose”. Thus, the decision of the USA to reduce Cuba’s diplomatic staff in Washington without the conclusive results from the investigation and without evidence of the incidents . . . ‘has an eminently political character.’

Rex Tillerson, the Secretary of State, twitted,
