Belice y Argentina They criticize the exclusion of Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela from Summit of the Americas to the face of USAthe host of the event.
“I would like to make it clear for the future that the fact of being the host country of the summit does not grant the ability to impose the right of admission on the countries of the continent. Dialogue in diversity is the best instrument to promote democracy and the fight against inequality”, highlighted the president of Argentina, Alberto Fernandezduring the event.
the president of USA, Joe Biden, has minimized the controversy and has asked attendees to focus on “serious problems”. Biden has already justified his decision to exclude those three countries for not meeting democratic standards. During his speech he has appealed to the unity of democracies.
“In the coming days, we have the opportunity to find ways to improve all of our peoples by working together. And I stress together. Together. That is what our people expect of us. And it is our duty to show them the power of democracies when they work together”, stressed Biden.
“There is no reason why the Western Hemisphere cannot be the most advanced, most democratic, most prosperous, most peaceful and most secure region in the world. We have unlimited potential”, added the president of USA.
Biden has preferred to focus during the summit on issues such as migration, more equitable growth in the region and the fight against climate change. In fact, Biden had a bilateral meeting with the president of brazil this Thursday, but his idea that the international community help preserve the Amazon has not pleased the far-right Jair Bolsonaro who claims to preserve his territory very well after deforestation reached record levels during his mandate.
