The France-Cuba Association denounced the US for using democracy and human rights to justify excluding Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela from the IX Summit of the Americas.
The organization has called Washington's behavior unacceptable, pointing out the double standards of the U.S., which is a country that openly violates international democracy and human rights, the association said.
According to the association, Washington ratifies its policy of unilateral sanctions against those nations that refuse to obey its mandates with this measure. In this regard, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez also denounced a week ago the intention of the US to exclude Cuba from the forum to be held the week of June 6-10 in Los Angeles, California.
The Summit will be centered on "Building a sustainable, resilient and equitable future" for the continent. It is an occasion to address the challenges and opportunities shared by the region.
