Scheduled for June 6 in Los Angeles, CaliforniaMany Latin American presidents have already announced that they will not attend or that the meeting will lose consistency because it has slipped. The reason is the dissatisfaction created by Washington’s exclusion of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua. President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) rejected this decisionThis was followed by Louis Ars of Bolivia, who joined the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), which consisted of fifteen countries, most of which were former English-speaking colonies.

It is the second largest city in the country, with the most representative Latin community and the third largest number of embassies in the world.
The State Department points out on its official website something that has not been verified in practice. Announced Open and unrestrained nature Its summons to the summit. It says, “The United States has demonstrated and continues to demonstrate a commitment to an inclusive process that represents the immense diversity of our hemisphere and includes input from peoples who include indigenous and other historically marginalized voices.”
CEOs of the United States
The summit has been held every three years since 1994 with minor changes. It is the only gathering of leaders from North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean to generally associate themselves with the White House.

The fourth is said to be more representative of their business interests CEO Summit of the United States. There will be two more; One from civil society and the other from the youth of America.
With the exclusion of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, the United States felt that there would be no more shocks, which became a problem for Fiden. The Mexican president announced at one of his regular press conferences last Tuesday: “If it is excluded, the representation of the Mexican government will go, but I will not go.” He had just returned from Havana, where he met with his colleague President Miguel Diaz Colonel.
Unlike another Mexican president, Right-wing Vicente Fox, Lopez Obrador is not afraid of retaliation from his powerful neighbor.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez did not back down from Washington’s determination: “After the last campaign and the presidential election, the attack on Capitol, the involvement of politicians in treason, the US government will be able to expose little to no political corruption.”

Lopez Obrador, on the other hand, said he did not lose everything. His visit to Havana on May 7 proved the strength of the 120-year-old historical ties between the two countries. He criticized the US siege, asked for the presence of the island, Venezuela and Nicaragua at the summit, and declared that he would insult Pita if he continued the operation.
