Correa may not attend Summit in Colombia

The President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, raised doubts in terms of whether or not he will attend the Summit of the Americas in Colombia on April 14th and 15th.

“Personally I am unwilling to participate further in these summits, where the issues affecting Latin American people are not debated,” he said in a press conference in Ankara, Turkey, where he is currently on an official visit. “There are important problems in our region,” he said, “but they are never debated in these summits. Like The U.S. embargo against Cuba (…) or the British ocuppation of the Falkland Islands.”

“I’ll be frank, I like the United States because I studied there but I cannot accept that one country excludes another. I feel it’s terrible and I don’t mean to hurt my North American friends when I say that the people of Latin America no longer agree with the organization of this type of summit.” He also said he did not mean to offend President Juan Manuel Santos, host of the event, in any way.

Previously Correa had urged all ALBA member countries to refuse to attend the summit if Cuba was not invited.
