Brazil has announced its decision to rejoin, fully and immediately, all political and technical entities of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).
President Lula will attend the 7th CELAC Summit, to be held in Buenos Aires on January 24th, at the invitation of Alberto Fernandez, President of Argentina, which holds the forum’s interim presidency. Brazil’s decision to rejoin CELAC is an essential step in restoring our diplomatic heritage and in repositioning Brazil in the international stage.
CELAC brings together all 33 countries of the Latin American and Caribbean region and does not include the United States and Canada. It’s a forum for the promotion of political dialogue, regional coordination and cooperation in themes including health, social inclusion, environment, food security and energy security. Leaders around the region have called for the strengthening of CELAC as an alternative to the discredited Organization of American States (OAS).
