MEXICO CITY – Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Colonel today advocated for a community of Latin American and Caribbean states (Selak) united in diversity to counter US forced action against regional powers.
During his speech at the VI summit of the organization, the country’s leader thanked the Mexican people and government for “their close friendship and solidarity with Cuba.”
Similarly, he expressed his gratitude to the other governments and people mentioned here, and “immediately understood” the opportunist propaganda of the infamy promoted from the United States against the Antilles.
Theos-Colonel reiterated that Cuba will continue to defend social justice for the benefit of all, and for the benefit of all, as desired by the national hero of the Caribbean, Jose Marti.
“Despite condemnation by the international community, I appreciate your support for lifting the economic, trade and financial barriers that have intensified during the epidemics,” he said.
The US government is trying to restart the Monroe Doctrine (1823) and the President has condemned international law and the declaration of Latin America and the Caribbean as a zone of peace.
The meeting will be attended by leaders of 17 countries, as well as two vice presidents, nine foreign ministers and other top officials, according to the Mexican Foreign Ministry.
Celac creates an intergovernmental mechanism for dialogue and political agreement, and its members include 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
