CELAC summit leaders begin to arrive in Mexico

Mexico-. The 16 heads of state who confirmed their presence at this level at the Sixth Summit of the Latin American and Caribbean Community (CELAC) began arriving in Mexico today.

Among the first reported are the arrivals of the heads of state of Uruguay, Paraguay, Peru, Belize, Honduras and Guyana, and the other 33 delegations are expected to do so during the day.

It was learned that the President of Argentina, Alberto Fernandez, refused to attend due to the conditions within his government.

The State Department stated that it had prepared the texts of six statements that must be approved at the summit: the Mexico City Declaration, which is the public declaration;

In the specific topics, the first relates to the embargo against Cuba, another relates to the Malvinas Islands occupied by Great Britain, another relates to the COP26 United Nations Conference on Climate Change, another relates to future generations and the last relates to languages ​​and indigenous peoples. ..

The most prominent issue, although not on the agenda but in the eyes of the whole world, is the issue of the future of the Organization of American States which Under Secretary of State, Maximiliano Reyes, said is expected to be discussed as a proposal from Mexico which proposes to change or replace it.

Another previously unannounced issue concerns the creation of a disaster fund for Latin America and the Caribbean, as the region faces the effects of climate change such as floods, hurricanes, droughts and fires.

Likewise, the plan for which the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean is responsible will be announced, which will be followed to obtain vaccines, medical equipment and examinations so that what happened in 2020 in the face of the coronavirus epidemic does not happen. .
