“President AMLO does not want to go to the Summit of the Americas because he feels like a dwarf among giants and enormous among tyrants.

Previously, the PAN senator had expressed her rejection of President López Obrador’s proposal to invite Cuba and Venezuela to the Summit of the Americas, which she expressed to her US counterpart, Joe Bidenduring a phone call.

“No, no way, tyrants are not invited to anything“Lilly Téllez asserted about AMLO’s proposal to Biden.

“No one has the right to speak on behalf of all of America and decide who participates and who does not. We are independent, free, sovereign countries, we are governed not by hegemony mandates from foreign countries,” AMLO criticized.
He also stressed that so far the US government has not issued invitations to the heads of state, so there is still the possibility that they will accept his proposal.
