In exclusive statements to Prensa Latina news agency, the also minister of that office underlined that since the arrival to power of President Hugo Chávez (2002-2013), relations with developing countries, regional organizations and allies have been part of the strategy and geopolitics of the state.
‘It is very difficult for revolutions to exist without a new scheme from the point of view of integration, without creating a new framework of international relations, progress cannot be made, there is no possibility of developing in isolation’, he stressed.
Menéndez, recalled that one key principle of Simón Bolívar’s thoughts was precisely unity in Latin America, as the essential idea for the construction of a better alternative for the peoples of the region.
Also, he said, we have well-defined relations with Russia, China, Turkey and other allied nations, which also played an essential role in supporting the fight against Covid-19 pandemic, this last year.
The Planning Vice President also stressed that work is currently being done to strengthen regional integration organizations that were victims of the wave of right-wing governments and which must return to their tracks.
