Havana, Mar 17 (Prensa Latina) Cuba ratified today the falseness of the accusations about its alleged interference in the past US elections, as acknowledged by the US government itself.
The general head of the US directorate of the island’s Foreign Ministry, Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, said on his Twitter account that the US current administration confirmed that Cuba did not intervene or attempt to intervene in those elections.
‘The lie is part of the dirty war against Cuba,’ added the diplomat, who specified that the allegations constitute slander spread for propaganda and defamation purposes.
For his part, the director of the Center for International Policy Research and former Cuban ambassador to Washington, Jose Ramon Cabañas, published on the same social network a paragraph from a US National Security assessment on the subject.
The report about a possible foreign interference in the 2020 elections points out that the probabilities that Cuba would promote activities related to an anti-Republican and pro-democratic narrative are low.
Last November, when lawyers linked to the US President at that time Donald Trump first spoke of alleged interference by Cuba in the electoral process, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez immediately rejected those claims.
‘Representatives of President Trump lie mercilessly by spreading false information about alleged Cuban interference in the US elections. Pure slander,’ he then wrote on Twitter.
He added that, in contrast to the US State Department’s policy at the time, Cuba does not interfere in the electoral process of other countries.
