WASHINGTON (AP) — Cuba’s foreign minister on Thursday accused the United States of lying about mysterious sonic attacks that U.S. diplomats in Havana say left them with ailments including headaches, hearing problems and concussions.

Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said the U.S. was “deliberately lying” about the attacks, which Cuba’s government has denied any knowledge of.

Speaking at a news conference, Rodriguez alleged the issue has been used “as a political pretext for damaging bilateral relations and eliminating the progress made” under U.S. President Barrack Obama.
