Cuba complaints again about exclusion by US from regional summit

Havana, May 13 (Prensa Latina) Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Friday reiterated Cuba's complaint about its exclusion, by the United States, from the Summit of the Americas, to be held in Los Angeles from June 8 to 10.

On his Twitter account, the head of Cuban diplomacy considered that with such a decision, the White House eliminates the possibility of discussing important issues in bilateral and regional relations, such as migration.

The United States Government, under pressure from extreme sectors, convenes a limited and exclusive Summit in Los Angeles, Rodriguez tweeted.

The intention of the Joe Biden administration by not inviting Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela to the meeting has caused several governments in the region to announce their absence from now on if the hosts insist on their decision.

Faced with attempts to prevent Cuba’s presence at the regional event, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez recently pointed out that “the host country of the Summit of the Americas has no right to impose arbitrary exclusions.”

“It is a politically motivated decision with no other support than false accusations and double standards to hide its true nature, linked to the internal and electoral politics of the United States,” he assured.

In this regard, Presidents Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (Mexico), Xiomara Castro (Honduras) and Luis Arce (Bolivia) have already announced their absence.
