Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) accused the Cuban government Wednesday of partaking in the attacks against American diplomats in Havana during the past year.
“There is no way you can do that in Cuba and the Cuban government not know about it,” Rubio said at an event hosted by Politico. “This wasn’t conducted in some remote area—this was in Havana, in hotels, and in areas of Havana where Americans are known to be.”
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez earlier this month denied the Castro regime’s involvement. Rodríguez dismissed the accusations as “deliberate lies” formulated to undermine diplomatic relations between the Cold War enemies.
