Mexico: Regime Says No Nation Should Be Excluded from Americas Summit

Source: Common Dreams

“Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Sunday that no nation in the Western Hemisphere should be left out of the upcoming Summit of the Americas, directly refuting Washington’s attempt to bar Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela from the U.S.-hosted meeting. The Mexican leader’s remarks come as the U.S. State Department has indicated that government representatives from three Latin American countries are unlikely to be invited to the June summit in Los Angeles. ‘Cuba, Nicaragua, the [Nicolas] Maduro regime [in Venezuela] do not respect the Inter-American Democratic Charter, and therefore I don’t expect their presence,’ Western Hemisphere Assistant Secretary of State Brian Nichols said in an interview last week.” (05/09/22)
