Cuba, U.S. hold meeting on cybersecurity

Cuba, U.S. hold meeting on cybersecurityHAVANA, Jan. 13 (Xinhua)   Cuba and the United States Friday held a closed-door meeting in Washington to strengthen cybersecurity cooperation as part of limited government contacts since U.S. President Donald Trump set back bilateral relations last year.

According to Cuba’s Foreign Ministry, delegations of both nations met in the U.S. capital where they “shared views on the importance of cooperation in this area” and agreed to hold future technical meetings on the topic.

“This meeting falls within the context of the law enforcement dialogue, which was established by both sides in November 2015,” said an official release.

The Cuban delegation was composed of officials and representatives from the Interior Ministry, Foreign Ministry as well as Communications Ministry.

Washington and Havana have reduced their cooperation meetings to a minimum after Trump decided to stop thawing ties between the two nations.

Relations have also been hampered by alleged “attacks” on U.S. diplomats in the island nation which led to the partial closure of the U.S. embassy in Havana and the expulsion of 15 Cuban diplomats in Washington.

Cuba Tuesday said the U.S. allegation was unacceptable and only served to impose an accusation without evidence.
