Lacking pretexts for the effort to exclude countries from the region from the hemispheric Summit in Los Angeles, the United States once again resorts to slander by pointing out that Cuba does not cooperate sufficiently in the fight against terrorism. One more lie, pointed out the highest Cuban diplomatic representative on Twitter.
Washington’s attempts to leave the island, Venezuela and Nicaragua out of that meeting provoked expressions of rejection among leaders of the region.
Governors, such as the Mexican Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and the Bolivian Luis Arce, announced that they will be absent if all the American nations are not invited.
Earlier Thursday, the Minister of Foreign Affairs wrote on that social network that by excluding countries from the hemisphere from the Summit convened in the name of “the Americas,” the United States can no longer hide behind the pretext of not having completed the invitations.
In his message, he urged the White House to understand that in Latin America and the Caribbean “there is no longer room for the Monroe Doctrine,” which advocates US dominance over the hemisphere.
Also on Twitter, Deputy Foreign Minister Carlos Fernández de Cossío described the pretext used by the US government as “a hypocritical slander that no official of that government can honestly substantiate.”
The Cuban trajectory in the true fight against terrorism is clean and recognized, he pointed out.
