Summit decries protectionism
Saturday 25 July 1992
The 18 leaders reaffirmed their commitment to economic reforms as guarantees of stable democracy and cited poverty as a prime source of instability.
A document, agreed after two days of talks, affirmed the commitment of the Ibero-american nations to 'representative democracy, respect of human rights and fundamental liberties'. Sources said the reference to 'representative democracy' was an implicit criticism of Cuba's Communist regime and President Fidel Castro. But a Cuban spokesman said Cuba had no problem accepting the text.
