Prensa Latina, 25 September:
Relations between China and Latin America are likely to continue enlarging within the Bolivarian Alternative for the Peoples of our America (ALBA).
VenezuelaÂ´s President Hugo Chavez made the proposal at a press conference closing his fifth visit to Beijing.
Chavez said he had proposed China draw up cooperation mechanisms with ALBA, and added his hosts are well informed about Latin American reality.
Those links, he explained, would not be between countries but with the bloc, which is made up of Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Dominica, and other nations as observers.
Referring to ALBA, he highlighted principles such as the recognition of asymmetries, solidarity, and teamwork, and noted that the bloc keeps expanding.
All this is part of the new world geo-policy, the Venezuelan leader stated, and added “a multipolar world is rising, while attempts for a unipolar world are going to pieces.”
