On his official Twitter account, the foreign minister pointed out that the declaration reflects “the deep vocation for peace in our region and the invariable commitment to respect national sovereignty and the self-determination of peoples.”

The Proclamation was signed in Havana by the heads of State and Government of the region on January 29, 2014, during the second summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).

The document states that nations will work permanently for the peaceful settlement of disputes, “in order to banish forever the use and threat of use of force.”

Likewise, it ratifies that the States will not intervene, directly or indirectly, in the internal affairs of others, and will foster friendly and cooperative relations, regardless of the differences between their political, economic and social systems or their levels of development.
