When there are only a few days left until the 27th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Cuba and the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis, the Cuban Ambassador David Rivero Pérez and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Aviation of this Federation, Kaye Bass, held a working meeting.
I have to report that Washington has decided to exclude the Republic of Cuba from the preparations for the 9th Summit of the Americas to be held in Los Angeles on 8th to 10th June and is presently exerting extreme pressures on numerous governments in the region which, privately and respectfully, oppose our exclusion. The US government is deceiving public opinion and the governments of the hemisphere, saying it has not yet decided on the invitations. I respectfully ask Secretary of State Blinken to say honestly whether Cuba will or will not be invited to the 9th Summit of the Americas.
