Patino said that the final document of the Summit insisted on demanding an immediate, unconditional end to the nearly 50-year-old US blockade against Cuba, in a press conference in Quito.
“More condemnation of this policy is impossible, as it is an emblematic case in which the entire world has been demanding for decades the United States to end the blockade that harms so much the Cuban people,” he said.
Considering ALBA as a Latin American pro-integration body also seeking participation of peoples and social organizations, a summit with indigenous and African descendant authorities was called.
It will be held in Otavalo, in the Ecuadorian province of Imbabura, on June 3-4 this year, said Patino.
Indigenous and African descendent authorities of ALBA member countries are expected to attend this summit to discuss their interests and regional integration-related proposals.
