The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, this Saturday disqualified some of the agreements of the IX Summit of the Americas, which the country was excluded along with other Latin American dictatorships, such as Venezuela and Nicaragua.

The adopted action plan on Democratic Governance is, in his opinion, “unbalanced and biased” and “disregards the political and social diversity and plurality in our region”, wrote the chancellor on Twitter.

Rodríguez added that “there is no single model of democracy and the inalienable right of each State to choose its political, economic, social and cultural system must be respected”, as “recognized by the UN and by CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States)”.

The IX Summit of the Americas ended yesterday in Los Angeles with criticism by leftist leaders of the United States’ decision not to invite Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela.
