«ALBA countries are organized to help each other, not to invade, appropriate natural resources, organize coups d’état or destabilize”, he said.
For his part, the president of Banco del ALBA (Bank of ALBA), Raúl Lo Causi, informed that the organization is preparing the second phase of cooperation with St. Vincent and the Grenadines in order to rebuild the country.
