Yes, because I don’t want the same policy to continue in America.

For Lopez Obrador, no country, in this case, the United States, has the right to exclude the others. In particular, he made reference to Cuba. On Sunday, from Havana, he had promised to intercede with Washington so that the Caribbean country was included in the meeting.
