WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Rubio’s letter came after US Southern Commander General John Kelly told reporters on Friday that the United States has no idea where the US missile, accidentally sent to Cuba, is.
"I urge you to provide the above information to Congress as quickly as possible," Rubio stated on Friday.
On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that an inert air-to-surface Hellfire missile produced by the United States and intended for training purposes in Europe, was wrongly shipped to Cuba in 2014.
"The fact that the administration, including you, have apparently tried to withhold this information from the congressional debate and public discussion over US-Cuba policy is disgraceful," Rubio stated.
US authorities have tried to retrieve the missile from the Cuban government for over a year, according to media reports. The officials have also been working on establishing what actions led to the mistake.
