The Americas still divided over Cuba

The divide over inviting Cuba for the future summits was quite stark at the sixth Summit of the Americas. The summit was attended by leaders of the 34 member states of the Organization of the American States.

The focus of the summit talks were the increasing drug issues in the South America, Cuba returning as a member to the Organization of the American states and regional integration.

But what became clear after this two day summit was that, except for USA and Canada every other member state is for Cuba’s return and that USA does not enjoy the kind of influence that it once did. The change of winds of the trade might have something to do with it. Latin America is becoming less and less dependent on US trades and increasingly leaning towards China.
