Guatemalan President Alejandro Chiamate announced on Tuesday that he would not attend the US summit in Los Angeles in June. Leaders such as Mexico and Bolivia have established their presence in the forum.
The host of the event, the United States, on Tuesday criticized the appointment of Guatemala’s attorney general, Consul Boras, for another four years, despite the Foreign Office adding him to its list of “corrupt agents”.
The State Department’s comments were not well received by Giamatte. “They are not going to invite me to the summit. Anyway, I sent word that I was not going to go, ”the president said.
“I said it and I will say it again to the ambassador of that country [EE.UU.]That this country [Guatemala] This size may be [pequeño]But as long as I am president this country is respected and its sovereignty is respected, ”the president said during the operation of the Mexican embassy in his country.
The presidents of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) and Luis Arce of Bolivia, have already announced that they will offer their assistance conditionally without exception.
“I reiterate that the United States Summit will not be the full summit of the United States, except in the United States. I will not take part in further exclusion of fraternal nations, “said Ars.
“If that is not the case, the Mexican government’s representation will go, but I will not go.
The United States has decided to exclude Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua from the US IX Summit scheduled for June 6-10 in Los Angeles under the slogan “Creating a Stable, Flexible and Equal Future”.
Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla had already condemned Washington’s exclusion of Havana from preparations for the forum and pressure on neighboring governments to oppose the move.
The Cuban diplomat assured that avoiding Cuba’s presence at the meeting would be a serious historical setback and detrimental to the terms of the agreement.
