By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Despite threats of not attending the US-hosted Summit of the Americas by several leaders in the region, the Biden administration made the final decision to exclude the governments of Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua.
And today, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador announced that he will not be attending the Summit of the Americas since not all the region’s leaders were included. The Mexican Foreign Minister will attend on his behalf instead.
Reuters reported that information from U.S. officials indicated that the U.S. concerns about human rights and lack of democracy in the three countries (Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua) weighed too heavily against inviting them.
The event is scheduled to commence on Wednesday and U.S. officials had reportedly contemplated inviting a lower-ranking representative from Cuba but that idea was rejected.
Washington officials say that despite the absences, the summit will be a success.
