古巴外长星期六对一些居住在美国的古巴侨民表示,美国所指称的其驻古巴外交人员遭到神秘的声波攻击是“政治操作”,意在损害古巴与美国的双边关系。

古巴外交部长罗德里格斯在华盛顿与古巴侨民的见面会上表示,“所谓的声波攻击完全是假的。”

美国没有就其所说的声波攻击事件正式指责古巴。神秘的高分贝声波使一些驻古巴的美国外交人员听力损伤、头痛、眩晕和恶心。但美国总统川普上星期表示,哈瓦那应对此负责。

白宫表示, 古巴政府应该能够制止噪音。这一事件已经使美古关系紧张,美国已经从古巴撤回了超过一半的外交人员,还驱逐了15名在华盛顿的古巴外交官。

美国政府已经开始限制美国公民赴古巴旅行,并警告申请赴古巴旅行者可能遭到声波攻击。

古巴官员指责川普诽谤。

罗德里格斯表示,美国撤离外交人员给申请美国签证的古巴公民造成困难。他对这一事件的发展感到不悦。他说:“从古巴政府的角度来看,这是不能接受的,也是不道德的,两国政府之间的分歧使人民受牵连。”

罗德里格斯还表示,在美国的古巴公民从美国前往古巴时,他们所持的古巴护照将不再需要特殊审查。他表示,美国政府把门关上,古巴把门打开。

罗德里格斯说,古巴还会让在美国的古巴公民子女更容易获得古巴国籍,并允许非法离开古巴的古巴人回国。

Cuban Foreign Minister Calls Chill in US-Cuba Ties ‘Political Manipulation’

Cuba’s foreign minister told a group of Cubans living in the United States Saturday that U.S. allegations of mysterious sonic attacks on U.S. diplomats in Cuba are “political manipulation” meant to undermine bilateral relations.

Bruno Rodriguez told his audience in Washington that “the so-called sonic attacks ... are totally false.”

The U.S. has not officially blamed Cuba for the mysterious high-pitched sounds that left U.S. diplomats with hearing loss, headaches, dizziness and nausea. But last week, President Donald Trump said he believes Havana is responsible.

The White House has said it believes the Cuban government could put a stop to the noises, which caused enough tension that the United States withdrew more than half its diplomatic staff from the island and expelled 15 Cuban diplomats from Washington.

The U.S. government has also begun restricting issuance of travel visas to Cuba and warning applicants about the sonic attacks.

Cuban officials have responded by accusing President Trump of slander.

Rodriguez said the withdrawal of U.S. diplomatic staff is causing hardships for Cubans who need to acquire U.S. visas. He expressed frustration over the development, saying, “It’s unacceptable and immoral, from the point of view of the Cuban government, for people to be harmed by a difference between governments.”

Rodriguez also said Cuban citizens in the United States will no longer have to go through a special review of their Cuban passports to travel from the U.S. to Cuba.

“The U.S. government closes, and Cuba opens,” he said.

Rodriguez also said Cuba is making it easier for the children of Cubans in the United States to get Cuban citizenship, and said Havana will allow some Cubans who left the country illegally to return.
