The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, denounced the exclusion of his country from the Summit of the Americas, which is scheduled to take place in June in Los Angeles, California, USA.
In a message posted on his Twitter account, Díaz-Canel gave his support to the Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodríguez, who demanded a response from the US government as to whether or not Cuba would be invited to the summit.
Díaz-Canel stated that, by not inviting Cuba to the summit, the US is only intensifying its blockade policy.
“We support the denunciations made by our Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez, regarding the USA’s attempt to exclude#Cuba from the next Summit of the Americas and other such acts that, through the use of third parties, intensify the blockade policy,” President Díaz-Canel wrote in a Twitter post.
