Montevideo, Sep 25 (Prensa Latina) The Broad Front (Frente Amplio-FA) coalition on Saturday underscored the call for a definitive end of the blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba, at the 6th Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), recently held in Mexico.

At the same time, the FA regretted the role played by President Luis Lacalle Pou, who discredited governments with which Uruguay has diplomatic relations, alluding to Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.

However, he did not condemn countries where State terrorism is implemented and human rights are violated, with total interference in and violation of the sovereignty of nations and the principles of public International Law of non-intervention and free self-determination, according to a statement issued in Montevideo.

The Political Bureau of the Broad Front considered very positive the change of the course proposed by the Government of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in matters of Foreign Policy of the Mexican State.

‘He proved to have a clear, courageous and decisive vision regarding the challenges to the integration of Latin America and the Caribbean in response to the need to promote a strong renewal in relations among our nations, independent and autonomous from the will of the United States and its political executor, the OAS,’ the communiqué noted.
