On May 24, 1918, the Mexican government decided to withdraw its diplomatic representative in Cuba, in response to several measures taken by the government that violated the interests of our country. The Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Cándido Aguilar, explained that this did not mean the rupture of diplomatic relationships, since Mexico continued considering Cuba as a friendly country.

The Mexican Foreign Minister stated that, due to the state of war Cuba was before the central powers, the Caribbean country had been driven to take measures that violated the interests of our country. This forced our Government to present in each time the corresponding claims.

The Mexican government understood the extraordinary situation in which the friendly republic was and did not want that the good historical relationship between both nations will be affected by that.
