Cuba in Canada

Statement by the Cuban Ambassador to Canada, Josefina Vidal January 30, 2019

Cuba understands the obligations of the government of Canada to protect its diplomatic personnel posted anywhere in the world and to try to find answers to the health symptoms reported in Cuba, however, it considers that Canada´s decision made public today is incomprehensible.

Cutting Canada´s staff at its Embassy in Cuba and adjusting the mission´s programs are actions that do not help find answers to the health symptoms reported by Canadian diplomats, and which will have an impact on the relations.
