Brazil applies for Celac withdrawal

President Jair Bolsonaro decided to end Brazil’s membership to the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac).Government sources said that the decision was due, among other reasons, to the presence of dictatorships in the block, such as Cuba and Venezuela.The new position was communicated last Tuesday to the members. Created in February 2010, during a summit of the Rio Group in Mexico, Celac has 33 members and its main pillars are solidarity, social inclusion and complementarity.
