Public denunciation by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba of the preparations of the Third CELAC-UE Summit

The Third CELAC-EU Summit of Heads of State and Government will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on July 17 and 18.

The leaders from both regions will meet again after an 8-year hiatus, in the midst of a very complex international context.

The truth is that, over and above statements and declarations, bi-regional relations have hardly advanced and during the most recent period they have even regressed.

The Summit can be an opportunity to start changing that situation.  But there are reasons for concern.
