“I will not attend the summit because not all the countries of the Americas have been invited and I believe in the need to change the policy that has been imposed for centuries, the exclusion,” the president said, adding that Mexico will be represented by Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard at the summit starting Monday in Los Angeles.

“I believe in the need to change the policy that has been imposed for centuries: exclusion, desire to dominate without reason, disrespect for the sovereignty of nations. There can be no summit of the Americas if all nations do not participate. The American continent.”

Lopez Obrador’s comments came after Joe Biden’s government made the final decision to exclude the governments of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua from the Summit of the Americas, despite Mexico’s efforts to urge all countries on the continent to attend.



But the Mexican president added that his US counterpart, Joe Biden, is a “good person” and explained his decision not to invite certain countries “with great pressure from Republicans” on him “which is about the Cuban community in Florida, USA.”

“As the elections (in the United States) approach, they are afraid of it because they threaten that if a new policy is implemented with Cuba or with any country in the Americas and they do not agree, they demand that the parties not vote for the candidates. And they have a great influence.”
