Mexican leader to skip regional summit after US snubbed Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela

The Biden administration has decided to exclude Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela from a key regional summit this week, according to senior administration officials, prompting the Mexican president to say he would skip the meeting and would send his foreign minister instead.

The invitation was not extended to the three autocracies due to concerns about human rights and the lack of democratic institutions in those countries, the officials said. The Summit of the Americas, scheduled for June 6-10, is expected to focus on migration and economic issues.
