Havana, Jan 22 (RHC) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel arrived in Argentina today to participate in the VII Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).
Díaz-Canel arrived in Buenos Aires at the Ministro Pistarini International Airport, where he was received by Argentine Deputy Foreign Minister Pablo Tettamanti.
Cuba has been present at all CELAC summits and during its pro-tempore presidency worked to involve the Caribbean more in the organization. From the II Summit in Havana in 2014, the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace was born, an unprecedented emblematic document in the history of the region.
The Cuban president traveled for the first time to Argentina in December 2019 for the inauguration of Alberto Fernández. During that visit, he fulfilled an intense agenda, which included an emotional visit to the former Navy Mechanics School, one of the largest centers of torture and extermination during the last military dictatorship (1976-1983).
During 2022, under the pro tempore presidency of Argentina, that CELAC continued its progress in consolidating and strengthening the Community.
The meeting in Buenos Aires next Tuesday will constitute another historic moment, marked by the return of Brazil, after that country left the bloc in 2020. (Prensa Latina)
