The Republic of Cuba has condemned terrorist attack on its Embassy in the United States (US) late last Sunday.

The Cuban ministry of foreign affairs said the attack occurred, when an individual threw two Molotov cocktails from the sidewalk over the perimeter fence of the facility, which hit the front wall of the diplomatic mission, National Daily Newspaper gathered.

It said there were no injuries to the personnel who were present at that headquarters as at the request of the Cuban diplomatic mission, officers of the United States Secret Service arrived at the building and had access to its facilities to verify the violent action perpetrated.

The ministry in a statement made available to the press by Cuban Embassy in Nigeria urged the United States Government to act in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, in avoiding the repetition of such events.

According to the ministry, the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations requires the United States, as a receiving country, to take all appropriate measures to protect the premises of the mission against intrusion or damage.

It said, this is the second violent attack against Cuba’s diplomatic headquarters in Washington, since April 2020, lamenting that after three years, the perpetrator still awaits trial and the United States government has refused to classify the incident as a terrorist act.

Anti-Cuban groups resort to terrorism due to the moral bankruptcy of their hatred against Cuba and the impunity they believe they enjoy.
