He thanked the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) for calling the extraordinary meeting and urged participants to consolidate progress made in large-scale integration projects being undertaken by the multilateral organization, “in keeping with the principles we embrace; complimentarity, cooperation, and profound solidarity.”
He also noted the people can only achieve their ultimate goals through unity and in this regard, called on ALBA to establish mechanisms of dialogue to contribute to preserving the organization’s founding principles.
The Venezuelan leader also highlighted the importance of cultural and diplomatic cooperation directed toward building a strong and collective economic foundation.
