WASHINGTON, SEPTEMBER 19 - The US has expelled two Cuban diplomats accredited to the UN accusing them of "activities that threaten national security". The spokeswoman for the US State Department, Morgan Ortagus, announced on Twitter on the eve of the UN general assembly. The two diplomats have been accused of having "abused" their stay in the US to "try to carry out destabilization operations". From now on, moreover, "the presence within the United States of all the members of the permanent mission at the UN will be limited essentially to the island of Manhattan", where the Glass Palace is located.
