US Responds to Cuban Gov. AccusationsNovember 12, 2012 | | Print |
HAVANA TIMES — The United States Interests Section in Havana (USIS) published on its website a response to allegations made by the Cuban government recently of interfering in its internal affairs, reported the Cubaencuentro website.
The paper argues that training activities undertaken by the USIS in their facilities are “similar to those carried out by other US missions around the world.”
It added that, “This service would not be controversial or newsworthy if not for the limitations that the Cuban government puts on the use of Internet and the free flow of information.”
The explanation says that the US “permits the export of Internet services from Cuba,” and that the island “is free to negotiate contracts with Internet service providers in the United States and internationally.”
