Cuba has the right to participate in all continental events

“We are inclusive, not exclusive,” Sobange told Prensa Latina when talking about this regional bloc which is made up of 25 nations with a coastline on the Caribbean Sea from Mexico to Surinam, including all nations from the Caribbean arch, plus 10 members.

“Every regional event should include everyone; we are part of the continent, of the Great Americas, especially if it is a continental forum, so all countries should participate in that event,” he said in reference to the Summit of the Americas, slated from June 6-10 in Los Angeles, the United States.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez recently reiterated Cuba’s denunciation the US Government’s intention of excluding Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela from the summit.

“The United States keeps on hinting that it is organizing a selective summit without all countries in the hemisphere,” the foreign minister tweeted.

According to Rodriguez, with this decision the United States is seeking to prevent “a really serious analysis of the issues that have an impact on the lives of millions of people who live in this part of the world,” an attitude based on Washington’s political motivations and double standards of its Cuba policy, he underscored.

US Assistant Secretary of State Brian Nichols confirmed that the United States will exclude Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua from the Summit of the Americas, although the continent has called to hold an inclusive event.
