HAVANA.- (RHC) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez addressed the press in Havana this afternoon, following the Trump Administration's announcement earlier today that 15 Cuban diplomats from the island's Embassy in Washington will have to leave the country.

The State Department is expelling the Cuban diplomats after it slashed its Embassy in Havana last week, in response to the so-called "sonic attacks" suffered by U.S. personnel. According to the Washington Post, the expelled Cuban officials, whose names were on a list presented to the Cuban ambassador, will have seven days to abandon the United States.

Bruno Rodríguez categorically rejected the U.S. decision to expel 15 Cuban diplomats from Washington, saying it is politically motivated. He reasserted, though, Cuba's willingness to continue cooperating actively with U.S. authorities to clarify the matter.

Cuba has repeatedly said that its investigation into the alleged incidents have yielded no results, and has asked that the issue not be politicized.
