Executive Secretary of ALBA-TCP affirms Summit of the Americas is a failure

The executive secretary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our Americas – Peoples’ Trade Agreement (ALBA-TCP), Sacha Llorenti, affirmed that the ninth Summit of the Americas failed before it began, due to the imperialist position assumed by the United States. United by excluding Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua from this regional event.

In this sense, Llorenti quoted the late Argentine president, Néstor Kirchner, who during his lifetime underlined that “for a simple majority to fool around with ideas that have so much to do with the lives of our peoples is an absurd matter, almost anti-cultural, and very little helps to coexistence of all peoples” so this meeting “is neither a summit nor one of the Americas”.

Likewise, he pointed out that the current exclusionary position of the White House has provoked the rejection of presidents, regional and subregional organizations while highlighting the position assumed by the Mexican head of state, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who was the first to react.

In turn, the executive secretary of ALBA-TCP pointed out that the absence of non-guests will be very present in this edition of the Summit of the Americas “due to arbitrary discrimination: those who do not go, do not go in protest; and many of those who go, go to protest”.
