Raul Castro Says Cuba 'Will Never Go Back' to the OAS, ‘The OAS is an imperialist instrument’
"First the Southern sea would join the Northern sea, and a serpent would be born from the eagle's egg," the Cuban president said.
“Cuba will never go back to the Organization of American States,” Cuban President Raul Castro said on Saturday at the seventh summit of the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) in Havana.
“The OAS is an imperialist instrument," said President Castro, condemning OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro for his hostile stance toward Venezuela and the government of President Nicolas Maduro.
Before Cuba would consider joining the OAS again, "first the Southern sea would join the Northern sea, and a serpent would be born from the eagle's egg," said Castro, quoting legendary Cuban intellectual Jose Marti.
The Cuban leader expressed his support for President Maduro, who’s attending the summit, and said that the Bolivarian Revolution is facing a “destabilizing onslaught” led by those who don’t care about people and want to serve “imperialist interests."
Heads of state, foreign ministers and representatives of the 25 member countries of the ACS have joined the meeting in Havana to discuss the region's challenges in a scenario of economic crisis and threats to peace, democracy and stability.
Among other things on the agenda, the leaders of the regional bloc will debate the impact of climate change, particularly on the small island nations of the Caribbean.
President Castro is also urging the member countries to further promote regional integration in order to face together political, economic and social challenges.
