On his account on X, formerly Twitter, Prime Minister Manuel Marrero strongly rejected any acts of terrorism and recalled that the attack, which was perpetrated on Sunday night, is the second against the Cuban Embassy in three years. On the same platform, the first secretary of the Young Communist League (UJC), Aylín Alvarez, stressed that Cuba wants peace for all peoples, and denounced the double standards by the United States in maintaining Cuba on the unilateral list of countries that sponsor terrorism.
Likewise, the secretary general of the Cuban Women’s Federation (CTC), Teresa Amarelle, echoed the denunciations and demanded that US authorities arrest the perpetrators of this act.
The head of the Cuban diplomatic mission in the United States, Lianys Torres, informed in X that after the terrorist attack on the Embassy was perpetrated, they immediately contacted US authorities, who were given access to the mission to take samples of the Molotov cocktails.
Torres posted images of the diplomatic venue after the terrorist attack, perpetrated by an individual who threw two Molotov cocktails at the building.
In April 2020, an individual opened fire at the Cuban Embassy in Washington, causing material damage to the building.
According to official statistics, at least 581 acts of state terrorism have been perpetrated against Cuban diplomatic representations since the triumph of the Revolution in January 1959.
