Washington, D.C. — House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul issued the following statement on recent reports of China’s intent to pursue a spy operation in Cuba targeting the U.S.

“In just the last few months a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) spy balloon has traversed the U.S., a CCP military ship cut off a U.S. military ship in the Taiwan Strait, and the CCP banned Micron in China and raided other American companies. The CCP is now escalating their aggressive behavior by setting up a spy base 90 miles from America’s shores in Cuba. It is extremely shameful the Biden administration continues begging the CCP for talks while the CCP’s malign actions speak for themselves.”
