A NUMBER OF Latin American and Caribbean countries said their leaders will not be attending the upcoming 9th Summit of the Americas this June 6-10 set to be hosted by the Biden government in Los Angeles City.

The Caribbean Community had earlier said in the first week of May that if any American country will be excluded from the summit, its 14 member nations will likely skip the event. Biden had said that he will not invite Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela.

In a leaders’ summit last May 27 of ALBA-TCP (the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Treaty), Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, Cuba’s president, pointed out that it is important for Latin American and Caribbean countries to strenghten a “firm voice, work together and coordinate” to defend and develop sovereignties of their nations.

The Biden government hosted the summit in attempt to tame neighbouring countries which are moving towards its rival country, China.
