US: China Upgraded Cuban Spy Operations In 2019

The U.S. said Monday that China upgraded its spying operations in Cuba in 2019 that targeted the United States, even as Beijing rejected claims it was operating an intelligence-gathering operation on the island. That’s according to a Biden administration official who was not authorized to comment publicly about the matter and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The U.S. official said China’s intelligence-gathering operation in Cuba was “well-documented” when President Joe Biden took office in 2021. “This is an issue that this administration inherited.”

“It was our assessment that, despite awareness of the basing efforts and some attempts to address this challenge” during the White House tenure of former President Donald Trump, “we were not making enough progress and needed a more direct approach,” the official said.
