"Cuba is a safe country where 115 embassies and 6 international agencies offices are accredited. Canada's decision to downscale diplomatic staff in #Havana is both disappointing and incomprehensible. There isn't the slightest evidence about the alleged health injuries," Rodriguez wrote on Twitter on Friday.
According to Ottawa, the case brought the total number of affected Canadian employees, spouses and dependants in Cuba to 14. The Canadian government continued to investigate the potential causes of the unusual health symptoms these individuals have experienced; however, so far there had been no cause identified, the foreign office said.
Notably, in 2017, the US authorities said that some of the diplomats working at the US embassy in Cuba had been affected by an audio device and showed strange symptoms similar to the ones displayed by the Canadian embassy staff.
