23.09.2017, Venezuela.

The closing of the US embassy in Cuba will mean the return to a policy which wrong for at least 50 years, says the Permanent Representative of Venezuela in the UN, Rafael Ramirez, RIA News reports on September 23.

This is too bad, this means a return to the policies that were wrong for at least 50 years to try to isolate Cuba,”, – said Ramirez in his interview with RIA News during the General Assembly of the United Nations.

The gradual improvement of US-Cuban relations began in 2015, when after more than 50 years, the countries agreed to accept each other’s embassies. After that, President Barack Obama visited the Island Of Freedom [unofficial name of the Republic of Cuba – editor] in 2016.

However, this September, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, stated in his interview to CBS that Washington is considering the possibility of closing the US embassy in Cuba after a number of its staff became victims of acoustic attacks.

It was reported earlier that the US Department of State expressed its opinion on the matter, saying that some US embassy staff members were subjected to what is called an “acoustic attack” by the means of a special device. TV Channel CBS News, citing information from medical experts, reports that several of US and Canadian diplomats have been diagnosed with “mild traumatic brain injuries”.
