North Korea claims US ‘tacitly’ approved ‘terrorist attack’ on Cuban Embassy

Expert says DPRK seizing Molotov cocktail attack as opportunity to condemn US policy toward Havana and Pyongyang

North Korea has blamed the U.S. for a “grave terrorist attack” on the Cuban Embassy in Washington, accusing the U.S. of giving “tacit” approval through its policy toward Havana.

In a statement released on Sunday, a DPRK foreign ministry spokesperson suggested “anti-Cuban forces” that seek to overthrow the “social system of socialist Cuba” were behind the Sept. 24 attack, in which an individual allegedly threw two Molotov cocktails at the embassy.
