Havana, Cuba, will be the regional diplomatic scene for the celebration of the summit of CELAC (Community of Latin American and The Caribbean,) disposed to take place this week.
The new mechanism for regional integration, sponsored by Hugo Chavez in 2011, includes all the countries in the continent except United States and Canada.
The summit will include the participation of the Secretary General of the OAS (Organization of American States), Jose Miguel Insulza, for the first time.
The presence of 32 heads of state of the 33 member countries has been confirmed. The presidential summit will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Between the thirty documents and issues to be discussed is the support of the dialogue process of Colombian government with the FARC, that will turn the region into a “peace zone” and will incorporate Puerto Rico to the CELAC, even though it is a associated free state.
