Mexico is leading the charge in an effort to attempt to ensure that ‘all of the Americas’ are included in the upcoming ‘Summit of the Americas’ to be held in Los Angeles. According to the Mexican government, the country’s President Lopez Obrador is demanding that unity be present an all countries including Cuba; Venezuela, and so on be included in the summit or Mexico is out.
“Participation in the Los Angeles Summit has not yet been resolved because we are proposing that no one is excluded because we seek the unity of all America,” López Obrador said during his daily briefing in Mexico City.
“We feel that there should be no confrontation. Even with the differences, we must dialogue, all Americans, then we are yet to resolve this issue; we have a very good relationship with the government of President Biden. We want everyone to be invited. That’s the position of Mexico,” he added.
It is unclear if America would go for that considering the United States has a frosty relationship with that of Cuba and Venezuela.
“I’m aware that there are political groups in the US that are committed to confrontation, that would like to hold the people of Latin America and the Caribbean hostage, as is the case of the blockade against Cuba, which is highly promoted by Cuban politicians who have a lot of influence in the US,” López Obrador said.
“But I consider the blockade inappropriate, and inhumane (…) an entire people cannot suffer for the interest of a group, so the US government must decide on this because it is a matter of human rights, which has to do with sovereignty,” he added.
