​Venezuela President slams US for excluding countries from Americas Summit

CARACAS: Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has slammed the United States for barring his country and Nicaragua from the next Summit of the Americas, which will be held in Los Angeles from June 6 to 10.

According to reports, Maduro declared his government's "solid, robust, and comprehensive rejection of the imperialist vision that seeks to exclude the peoples of the Americas" from a regional conference.

The Venezuelan President is in Havana for the 21st Summit of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Trade People's Agreement (ALBA-TCP), which concluded on Friday.

Unlike Washington's handling of the Americas Summit, he said, the ALBA-TCP is inclusive and united, and it works on issues that affect people's lives and development in the area.  "If there is anything truly democratic on this continent, it is ALBA, in terms of its discussions and variety sharing," Maduro said.

Kevin O'Reilly, the US coordinator for the Americas Summit, repeated on Thursday that the governments of Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela, all ALBA-TCP members, had not been invited to attend the summit.
