Bolivian President Cancels Attending Ibero-American Summit

LA PAZ – Bolivian President Evo Morales on Thursday cancelled his attendance at the Ibero-American Summit in Panama citing “unavoidable commitments,” Bolivia’s communications minister told Efe.

Morales decided not attend the summit because of his “overloaded work agenda” and called a special Cabinet meeting for Friday, Amanda Davila said.

Bolivia will be represented at the Oct. 18-19 summit in Panama by Deputy Foreign Minister Juan Carlos Alurralde, who is already in the Central American country.

The cancellation takes place three days after Morales confirmed his presence at the meeting “after some doubts and consultations.”

“I don’t know if, in the future, this Ibero-American Summit of heads of state will continue being important,” he said last Sunday, speculating that this year’s conference might “be one of the last.”

Morales, who has been participating in these meetings since 2006, said last Sunday that the Latin American and European situation has changed since Spain and Portugal have been bringing “little presents,” cooperating with the development of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean and pushing for political dialogue.
