Arab-Latin American summit

Lula, the first leftist president ever of Brazil, is striving, since he was elected a couple of years ago, to help third world and emerging countries to rise up and counter the hegemony of the superpowers on world’s economy. The task is certainly a tremendous one but Lula is showing his pairs that such an endeavor is worth it. He has multiplied visits to Arab states and is organizing now a summit between Latin America and the Arab world. Arab countries would be much inspired if they follow Lula’s steps and look for alternatives markets instead of continuing to be closely tied to the same partners. The latter are certainly not keen on changing the status-quo.

Voir aussi en arabe cet article d'al-Hayat. Il parait que le niveau de participation arabe etait moins important que prevu. Esperons quand meme que le sommet sortira avec des directives pratiques, et non seulement des discours inutiles.
