Leahy REAX On The U.S. Withdrawal Of Most U.S. Embassy Personnel And Their Families From CUBA

“The health and safety of our diplomats and their families is the overriding concern here. 

“It remains a mystery to both of our governments what is causing this and who is behind it.  Whoever is doing this obviously is trying to disrupt the normalization process between the United States and Cuba.  Someone or some government is trying to reverse that process.

“We should do all that is possible to minimize the effects of these protective steps on our diplomacy and on our ability to assist Americans in Cuba.  And we must do all we can do solve this mystery so that our embassy personnel can safely return as quickly as possible.”
