OAS Assembly: Summit of the Americas Impossible Without Cuba

Asuncion, Jun 4 (Prensa Latina) Nicaragua stated today at the plenary session of the OAS Ordinary Assembly, running here, that holding another Summit of the Americas without Cuba’s presence is impossible. Denis Moncada, Nicaraguan permanent representative at the Organization of American States (OAS), called attention to Cuba’s non-inclusion in the text of resolutions adopted by the Permanent Commission of the regional body of the article proposed by his country.

Cuba must be invited to attend the 2015 meeting with a sovereign and unconditional participation, said Moncada, and added that this proposition was included by Nicaragua in three resolutions discussed at the Permanent Commission.

Paraguay’s Foreign Minister Eladio Loizaga, who presides over the plenary session where a vote was held, said all resolutions of the Permanent Commission and, therefore, the statement made by Nicaragua, had been approved.
