2011.09.10 - 14:51:45 / radiorebelde.icrt.cu. Havana, Cuba.- The foreign ministers of the Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas (ALBA) condemned on Friday in Caracas the military aggression of the North tlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) on Libya.
Convened by that organization for regional integration, the FMs of Venezuela, the host country, Cuba, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Ecuador and the Grenadine Islands declared themselves to be against what they defined as a US and European attempt to take possession of the natural resources of that north-African nation.
While inaugurating the meeting, broadcast by Venezolana de Television, FM Nicolas Maduro considered the aggression against Tripoli as a format that once again resorts to lie (...) and manipulation, (...) to justify invasion.
The agenda of the FMs’ meeting in Caracas includes the study of the stance that the ALBA will adopt in the upcoming period of sessions of the United Nations, on topics like the "real democratization" of that organization, the cause of the Palestinian people, and the case of Syria.
Other points on the meeting’s agenda will be the Summit of Latin America and the Caribbean on development and integration (CALC) of the new Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), to be held in December 2nd and 3rd in Caracas; and climate change.(ACN)
