At the 7th Summit of Heads of State and Government of that integration group, held in Argentina, the Cuban president pointed out that achieving unity and integration of what Jose Marti (1853-1895) called Our America is a shared duty.
Diaz-Canel underscored the work done by his Argentine counterpart, Alberto Fernandez, as pro tempore president of Celac, and assured that, under his leadership, that organization made notable progress in 2022.
In addition, he expressed his support for the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Ralph Gonsalves, who will assume that responsibility in 2023.
The Cuban head of State called to respect the maxim of unity in diversity, solidarity and cooperation, strictly adhering to the postulates of the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace.
You can also count on Cuba as president of the Group of 77 plus China this year, when we will work tirelessly to represent the interests of the nations of the South with dignity, Diaz-Canel pointed out.
