The Department of State Considers Closing Embassy in Havana

On Sunday, Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson said that the administration of the president of the United States, Donald Trump is deciding on whether to close the embassy of the United States in Havana. This was a result of a series of incidents that were totally unexplained that have damaged the health of diplomats of the United States of America. Rex Tillerson told CBS news that this particular decision is under evaluation since it is a very serious issue. Reports have revealed that at least 21 Americans have been confirmed to have some kind of medical harm in Havana. Rex Tillerson also confirmed that the State Department has brought forward some of the affected.

Rex Tillerson mentioned that these episodes were referred to as health attacks but the Department of State is now referring to these as incidents, but the causes of these incidents and the main culprits responsible for these incidents. However, the officials of the United States said that the victims have mainly suffered from hearing loss and in some of the cases reports of slight brain damage as a result of the sound waves. The president of Cuba, Raul Castro claimed that his government simply has nothing to do with these incidents. Rex Tillerson took a number of calls from Senators of the United States for shutting down the embassy of the United States in Havana which is the capital city of Cuba.

In the last week spokeswoman of the Department of State Heather Nauert, acknowledged the fact that the administration was at least considering of removing some staff from the embassy. Heather Nauert clearly mentioned that this is definitely a very dangerous situation which will not at all be an easy one to deal with. She added that we are all extremely concerned about the situation and what steps would be taken so that the situation can be efficiently and effectively handled. She said that the representatives of the United States can come back to their own country if they wish to do so. It shows the braveness, courage, dedication and hard work of the Americans irrespective of the fact that whether they are serving in Cuba or any other country in the world. Heather Nauert said that she wants to recognize them and let them know that we all are here to care for them.
