Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
The impact of COVID19 can already be measured and will be assessed in the future by the striking numbers of people infected, the unacceptable numbers of deaths, the unquestionable damages to the world economy, production, trade, employment and personal income of millions of people. It is a crisis that goes well beyond the scope of health.
On April 13, 2020, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba informed via Diplomatic Note to the Embassy of the United States in Havana that it rejects the statements that the Newsweek magazine, on its article dated April 3, 2020, attributes to a “high official” of the U.S. Department of Defense, according to whom “the U.S. intelligence community has evidence” that there have been drug shipments between Venezuela and Cuba.
