Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua were at this summit with people more representative than their regimes

Secretary of State Antony Blinken responded this Friday that Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua “were present” at the Summit of the Americas that took place in Los Angeles “with people more representative of their people than their regimes.”

Blinken referred to the presence in this city of representatives of civil society, exiles, and human rights defenders who participated in the different meetings that took place in parallel to the summit of heads of state to which the White House decided not to attend. invite Miguel Díaz-Canel, Nicolás Maduro and Daniel Ortega, with whom he himself met.

The Secretary of State also explained at the final press conference of the Summit that, in the vision of his government, “the talks that, according to our information, will be resumed in Mexico between the Venezuelan regime and the Unity platform are the best way to recover democracy for Venezuelans.”

Blinken also said that the sanctions on the Venezuelan regime “are not an objective in themselves” but “an incentive for behavior to change, if we see changes, the sanctions can be lifted.”

Mexico, a Latin American country that recognizes the legitimacy of Maduro, invited both Venezuelan parties to resume the talks that were initially sponsored by Norway.

The representatives of the Maduro regime left the table in October, in retaliation for the extradition from Cape Verde to the United States of a businessman and close ally of his, also accused of being his figurehead, on charges of corruption.

In January 2019, Washington and fifty other governments recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó, then head of Parliament, as interim president of Venezuela, after Maduro won his re-election in disputed elections.

The administration of then President Donald Trump imposed a battery of sanctions against Venezuela, but Maduro has managed to stay in power with the support of the military leadership, as well as Russia, China and Cuba.

“Sanctions are not an end in themselves. They are an effort to incentivize those who receive them to engage in different behavior,” Blinken said.

Asked about the invitation that Daniel Ortega made a few days ago for Russia to deploy weapons in Nicaragua, Blinken said that “each country is sovereign in its decisions” but “the idea that Russia can be a good partner in what has to do with security issues and the deployment of weapons I do not think is reliable.
