    Very pathetic to see how all these countries love to suck the scum coming from Cuba's totalitarian regime. CELAC is nothing but a wasted show of clowns, they don't even entertain anyone and none in Europe or North America could care less about it.

    Browsing through the main world media channels I find little , if no , coverage of this event . Could it be that they find the whole thing vaguely daft . Especially handing over the Presidency of CELAC to Cuba . Or have they understood that it has become a forum for left wing ideologísts ?

    I wonder too, I hoped to see more news about Pemex-Petrobras talks but only reuters and a few other sources made mention of it. I will wait and see on that front.

    About CELAC, well indeed the more loud are the left leaning presidents but I am not sure yet is because they own the group, at other points of reunion things were a lot more quiet. One must consider this group didn´t got much attention from the beggining out of the interested countries but this isn´t bad on itself, CELAC is supposed to be a political forum for debates and sometimes bilateral or trilateral meethings, if you want to talk economics there are mercosur and the pacific alliance, in fact one thing I liked about this summit was that there´s less rivarly between PA and Mercosur and more spirit of cooperation between them which is a good thing :)
