Maduro welcomed the fact that the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) is opening paths to regional unity through the reactivation of Councils of Ministers based on joint development
The governor Nicholas Maduroassured this Tuesday that the United States “is afraid of the anti-imperialist voice of Venezuela” when referring to the exclusion of the country from the IX Summit of the Americas, which will be held in the city of Los Angeles from June 6 to the next 10.
The president assured that Venezuela’s non-invitation to the international congress is due to “ideological reasons.”
“The decision is totally unjustified and discriminatory, imposed against the peoples who carry the flag of (Simón) Bolívar, (José) Martí, (Augusto César) Sandino, Fidel (Castro) and (Hugo) Chávez (…) Our voice will be present at the Summit of the Americas whatever the United States government says, we will be there with our truth,” he said.
He explained that the exclusion against Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela led to the unanimous condemnation of more than 25 governments, whose position of solidarity makes the Summit of the Americas “the Summit of the protest against imperialist exclusion.”
“They have never been able to and will never be able to with us, they have not been able to and will not be able to exclude us (…) There will be surprises, we have our trick, but what will we be, we will be”, he sentenced.
In this sense, he thanked the presidents of Mexico, Argentina and Bolivia, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Alberto Fernández and Luis Arce Catacora, respectively for their protest against exclusion, as well as the prime ministers of the governments of Latin America and the Caribbean.
“Special greetings to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for his courage, for his clarity. To President Luis Arce of Bolivia, to President Alberto Fernández of Argentina, to the Prime Ministers of the Caribbean and to the President of Honduras Xiomara Castro, I thank all of them,” he said.
Likewise, Maduro celebrated that the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) opens paths to regional unity through the reactivation of Councils of Ministers based on joint development.
“The path of Latin America and the Caribbean is that of union, inclusion, diversity, democracy, the right of all peoples to express their own opinions and build their own destiny,” he said.
On the other hand, the Venezuelan president confirmed that, sooner rather than later, the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) “will re-emerge like the phoenix to rebuild the great history” in the 21st century.
He indicated that Unasur “is a project of the Great Homeland that is about to be taken up again”, after its existence was endangered by the action of the international extreme right that tried to reduce it to ashes.
