Playa del Carmen, México, Feb 24 (Prensa Latina) President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, described as historic the decision of creating a new integration bloc in Latin America without the presence of the United States.

  We have approved a document that is the base to build a new institutionality without the United States, stressed the President in a press conference held after the end of the summit meeting of the Group of Rio in Cancun.

Wherever the United States is present, democracy is not guaranteed, peace with social equity is not guaranteed, underlined the President of Bolivia.

Morales stressed the significance of the two-day meeting which gathered the heads of government of Latin America and the Caribbean and considered the results as a hope for the peoples who struggle for social justice.

The Heads of State and government representatives of 32 countries of that geographic area in the so-called Summit of Unity voted for the creation of a new bloc of regional integration without the participation of the US or Canada.

They also expressed their determination to reinforce cooperation with Haiti, devastated after the recent earthquake and adopted a document rejecting the prolonged economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States against Cuba.
