Los Angeles, June 11 (RHC) For the good of the Americas, it is time to end the blockade of Cuba, to listen to all the countries of the region, and to transform the inter-American order,  Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Friday at the ninth Summit of the Americas.

Speaking on behalf of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Ebrard said that most countries at the Summit expressed their support for a new stage in the relationship between the Americas.

"No more Organization of American States, no more electoral interventionism, no more missions that want to certify us, because we do not recognize that anyone certifies us, we are independent, sovereign and proud countries," he declared.

Ebrard, one of the last dignitaries to take the floor at the Summit plenary, said that throughout the Summit, most of the countries also expressed their disagreement with the exclusion of Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua.

He assured that this should lead that in future Summits of the Americas, there will be no countries excluded since it is not possible that most of the participants express their disagreement and nothing happens.

He stated that to achieve regional unity, some decisions cannot be postponed, such as the need to end the U.S. blockade of Cuba.

"Of all the countries here, in June 2021, 29 voted against the blockade against Cuba, two abstained, and one voted in favor in the General Assembly of the United Nations. What does this mean? Well, we have to solve it. It is a blockade against International Law, against the Human Rights we want to protect," the Mexican Foreign Minister stressed.
