HAVANA TIMES, Nov. 12 – The next summit of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) will be held in the Cuban capital on December 14 and 15, announced Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca.

The Bolivian minister said one of the event’s fundamental topics will be the U.S.-Colombian military agreement, noted IPS.

The Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA) initiative emphasizes social development, solidarity and mutually beneficial economic cooperation.

The Alliance is currently comprised of nine member states: Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Honduras, Ecuador, Dominica, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Antigua and Barbuda.



One thought on “Cuba to Host ALBA Alliance Summit

  • ALBA must become a military alliance; and it was always in the cards that this be so. You cannot create socialism without a gunfight — a fact pacifists will never understand.

    Best of luck.
