ALBA-TCP Condemns Monroe Doctrine and Interventionism in the Region

Havana, May 12 (Prensa Latina) The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our Americas-Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) condemned here the attempts by the United States to revitalize the Monroe Doctrine to promote hegemonism in the region.

The integrationist bloc established that position at a meeting of foreign ministers and heads of delegations from its member countries who are attending the 37th Session of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), a forum that ended on Friday in this capital, Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Rogelio Sierra told reporters.

According to the diplomat, the ALBA-TCP meeting also condemned the actions to destabilize some governments in Latin America, and reiterated its support for multilateralism and the peoples’ right to self-determination.

It was a meeting of great confraternity and coincidence between the parties, said Sierra, who accompanied Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in a tribute to Cuban National Hero José Martí, in the framework of his official visit to the Caribbean island.

The official noted that the meeting of the ALBA-TCP foreign ministers also analyzed the regional political situation, marked by a crusade against the revolutionary governments.
