The FBI has found no evidence that American diplomats in Havana were the victims of attacks with unknown weapons, according to Republican Sen. Jeff Flake.

During a meeting with top Cuban officials, including Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, Flake was informed that after four trips to Cuba, the FBI had found no evidence that the mysterious sickness experienced by several US diplomats was the result of foul play.

“Nobody is saying that these people didn’t experience some event, but there’s no evidence that that was a deliberate attack by somebody, either the Cubans or anybody else,” Flake told the Associated Press.

Twenty-four US government officials and spouses fell ill in Havana starting in 2016. The illnesses spurred the US to withdraw most of its diplomats from Havana, and also led to the expulsion of many Cuban diplomats from Washington.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said he is “convinced these were targeted attacks.” Cuba says the mysterious string of illnesses has been unjustly used to damage relations between the two countries – which were partially restored under President Barack Obama.

    Trump’s policies denounced as “unfounded and hypocritical accusations against Cuban democracy.”

The World Peace Council (WPC) has strongly rejected the U.S. President Donald Trump’s rollback of normalizing relations with Cuba.

In a statement published on Monday, the WPC called interventionist actions by the United States as “attempts to frustrate the progress of the Cuban Revolution and isolate the nation through a criminal blockade imposed for over five decades.”

They also slammed the reasoning behind the rollback as “typical of a failed and outdated policy, of unfounded and hypocritical accusations against Cuban democracy.”

In addition, the Council also recalled the long history of aggression by Washington in Latin America, stressing that all nations have a right to self-determination and sovereignty, “given signs that domestic destabilization policies are set to intensify.”

The WPC, affiliated with the United Nations, is an international organization founded in 1950 that advocates for universal disarmament, sovereignty and anti-imperialism.

Earlier this month, at the 23rd Brazilian Convention of Solidarity with Cuba, WPC President Socorro Gomes cited the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro as “eternal as his humanism”.

She also stated that Castro’s legacy is a “major reference” for the WPC.

Trump’s rollbacks, announced earlier this month, include the continuation of the economic blockade, tightening of restrictions on business with companies linked to authorities in Havana, as well as prohibiting “people to people” travel to Cuba.

Other changes announced by the White House include the possibility of auditing all U.S. citizens who visit Cuba to ensure that they have not violated the sanctions policy.
