“It is not true that Cuba interfered or tried to interfere in the American elections,” Carlos Fernandez de Cosio, director of the United States administration at the Cuban Foreign Ministry, wrote on Twitter.

In this report from the Department of Justice and Homeland Security published on Tuesday, the authors mention, without mentioning his name, the allegations made by Donald Trump and his supporters in the running of Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election.
We are aware of public statements that foreign governments, including Venezuela, Cuba and China, […] They manipulated the count thanks to their control of the electoral infrastructure, “they wrote.” The investigations showed that they were not credible. ”
The report, which cites Russian, Chinese and Iranian interference attempts, concluded that no foreign country has been able to tamper with the results of the 2020 elections.
Eugenio Martinez, Director of the Latin America and the Caribbean Department at the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said on Twitter that “the capacity and frequency with which we lie in American politics is a perversion.” There is no evidence to prove this lie against Cuba. ”
