Leaders from almost every country south of the American border are gathering in Cuba for a meeting of the Community of Caribbean and Latin American States (CELAC).
They will discuss a range of social and development issues as well as Argentina’s decades-old disputed claim of the British-controlled Falkland Islands.
CELAC was created a little more than two years ago and has attracted attention as an alternative to the US dominated Organisation of American States.
