The CARICOM Secretariat has suggested that member states reject any attempt by the Biden administration to invite Venezuela’s Opposition Leader, Juan  Guaidó , to next month’s summit of the Americas.

«That should be a red line for CARICOM, as well as for a number of countries in Latin America,» noted a leaked discussion paper prepared by internal analysts ahead of today’s start of a two-day meeting of the region’s foreign ministers.

The US, which will host the meeting next month, recognises Guaidó as the head of an interim government in the South American nation. CARICOM does not.

Regional leaders are also being urged to attend if the US does not invite Cuba.
