Sacha Lorendi, executive secretary of the regional camp, said the high-level meeting would pay tribute to the 200th anniversary of the Carabobo war, a decisive military operation in Venezuela’s independence struggle.
The meeting of Alpha-DCP top officials will take place in a geopolitical environment characterized by the economic impact and human damage caused by the Govt-19 epidemic, with significant hostility from the United States against many countries in the region.
In a recent statement, Lorendi pointed out that while facing global challenges and threats to territorial communities, member states of the Coalition recognize the Coordinator’s will.
“We are working to further strengthen our alliance and make a qualitative leap towards solidarity, in a situation where the United States, in alliance with regional oligarchs, will ignore coordination efforts,” he said.
On Wednesday night, Everly Paul Chad, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Trade of Antigua and Barbuda, and Peter David, Minister of Agriculture, Lands and Forests of Grenada, arrived in Venezuela to attend the conference.
During the XVIII Summit on 14 December 2020 in the form of a video conference, Alpha-DCP approved the commitment to strengthen this regional organization.
This Thursday’s meeting will provide a continuation of the agreements that emerge from a series of meetings in 2021 aimed at strengthening cooperation in strategic areas such as health, agriculture and food, education, politics and communications.
