"On Tuesday we will host the closing ceremony of the People's Summit 2023 with presidents Gustavo Petro, Luis Arce and Alberto Fernandez," said Pineda, adding that Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel also confirmed his presence.
He stressed that the presence of several presidents at the event "shows that there is a real concern to put the needs of the peoples, peace and environmentalism at the center of the debate, and that is what we are going to promote".
The purpose of the social forum is to openly debate the most varied reflections, which will make it possible to promote an alternative model of development, cooperation and integration that is fairer, more supportive and sustainable.
Likewise, to promote fair relations between the peoples and governments of Latin America and the Caribbean with the peoples and governments of the European Union.
It also seeks to discuss current issues; share experiences of struggle and resistance; strengthen ties between popular movements, trade unions, solidarity groups, migrant communities, associations, personalities and political forces of both continents.
