The Cuban government criticized the United States president Barack Obama for speaking of the Cuban democracy during the VI Summit of the Americas. Cuba considered that the meeting was “a rebellion” of Latin America and the Caribbean against the United States and Canada.
“Obama must be aware that it was not proper to give a piece of advice on democracy to Cuba in the VI Summit of Cartagena,” the island government made the declaration through the official newspaper Granma.
The alleged rebellion of the United States and Canada was perceived due to their position of not inviting Cuba to the Summit. Both governments denied that the statement was mentioned in the final declaration. (AV)
