The government of USA assured this Saturday that China it already had a spy center on the island since 2019, or even earlier, and framed it in Beijing's efforts to expand its intelligence services around the world.

The White House declassified this Saturday information from its intelligence serviceswhich he sent to EFEand which reveals the scope of China's alleged espionage activities in Cuba.

According to those intelligence reports, when US President Joe Biden arrived at the White House in January 2021, he received information that China was trying to expand its intelligence services around the world with the creation of spy centers in Latin America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

Those efforts by China reportedly included “intelligence collection facilities” in Cuba, a term that can include anything from centers with dozens of spies to a simple listening post equipped with an antenna.

That "intelligence collection facility," the appearance of which the White House did not specify, was presumably renovated in 2019according to declassified information.

Based on this information, it is clear that Washington had information on China's espionage activities in Cuba since 2019 or even before.

This declassification of new information comes after Thursday The Wall Street Journal published that China and Cuba had reached an agreement to build a large spy center on the islandsomething that the Cuban Executive categorically denied.

At first, the White House called that information "inaccurate." The Wall Street Journal; but this Saturday he agreed to give details to the press.

The publication of the information The Wall Street Journal made Biden he was rained down by criticism from the Republican oppositionespecially of the representatives in the Florida Congress, where a good part of the Cuban exile lives.

This Saturday, the US official who released the intelligence information emphasized that Biden "inherited" this problem from his predecessorRepublican Donald Trump (2017-2021).

According to that source, as soon as he arrived at the White House, Biden asked his team to solve this problem and, after months of “low-key” diplomacy, the alleged expansion of China's intelligence services throughout the world, including in Cuba, has been slowed down.

After the publication of the article The Wall Street Journalthe Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Carlos Fernández de Cossío, assured in a statement to the media that it was “unfounded information”, “slander” and “fallacies” to justify the US sanctions against Cuba and destabilize the island.

For its part, the Chinese government accused the United States of "spreading rumors and slander." (EFE)
