Havana, Jun 13 (RHC)-- Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Minister of Foreign Affairs, described the 9thSummit of the Americas as a failure, which generated public criticism of the U.S. decision not to invite Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.
In an interview on Cuban television on Monday evening, Rodriguez said that Cuba's absence in the meeting in Los Angeles was always a reason for discord with the United States and became a vindication of Latin America and the Caribbean.
"They underestimate us with arrogance, with their vision of domination, and underestimate our America for protesting and imposing an ever-greater resistance," he said, alluding to the discriminatory policy of the White House.
The foreign minister stressed that the voice and presence of the island were permanent in the so-called hemispheric summit, in the People's Summit, in the U.S. and international press, in digital networks, and in the interventions of the region's leaders.
In his opinion, the protagonist of this new feat is the Cuban people, which amid so many difficulties, continue to move forward because of its history of resistance, victorious effort, and generous and solidary detachment.
Regarding the possibility of participating in another edition of the Summit, Rodríguez Parrilla confirmed that Cuba would participate since its government and people are not afraid to discuss issues of significant interest based on respect.
