Cuban Foreign Affairs Minister Bruno Rodriguez tweeted Tuesday that countries need to work together to defeat the pandemic, instead of interfering in the scientific research on the disease to promote a political agenda.

The nation "calls on the international community to strengthen cooperation and solidarity. We reject attempts to politicize, single out and stigmatize the studies on the origin of COVID-19," he said.

"We acknowledge China's responsible and transparent contribution in relation to the pandemic," he added.
