Dominica ratifies commitment to ALBA-TCP and integration principles

A conspiracy maneuver, orchestrated by “those who vindicate and applaud the United States,” is underway to prevent the integration of free, sovereign nations, denounced on Thursday Venezuela’s President Maduro.

At the 19th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP), Maduro said that this conspiracy is trying to stop the consolidation of a plurinational bloc “that can walk with a common project of coexistence, union and support.”

In this regard, the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, rejected the foreign financing of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to topple democratically elected governments in Latin America and the Caribbean.

“We must not lose sight of those who do not want us to be united. What’s happening in all of our countries is that they’re setting up NGOs and millions of dollars have been funding NGOs in an attempt to displace left governments […] We have to oppose them because they are not friends of the peoples of our region,” he stressed.

On behalf of Dominica, Skerrit affirmed that no organization or intellectual center of power will deviate them from the commitment to regional unity, complementarity and solidarity of ALBA-TCP.

“We have a fight in our hands. It’s important to remain united and alert,” said Skerrit, who highlighted that independence “should be never compromised in any negotiation.”

Dominica’s prime minister expressed his support to Cuba and Venezuela in the face of the U.S. economic, financial, commercial persecution. Likewise, he reiterated his commitment to the Venezuelan Government to further the ideals of unity of Liberator Simón Bolívar.

“In Dominica, you have a solid friend, a solid ally. We will not be moved by any power that want to change our commitment to ALBA and to the principles of integration,” said Prime Minister Skerrit to President Nicolás Maduro.
