Havana.- The Fifth Caribbean Community (Caricom)-Cuba summit called last Monday for ending the trade embargo of Washington against Havana.

A final summit document described the economic embargo of over a half a century as an unacceptable action for the Caribbean region. Economic and trade relations were among the issues discussed at the fifth summit of the heads of government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and Cuba, which took place in Havana, the summit is held every three years on the date that the leaders of Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago broke a diplomatic embargo and visited Cuba.

The two sides also discussed strengthening co-operation. This assumed added importance in light of the on-going global negotiations for a climate change agreement and the upcoming negotiations on the United Nations Post 2015 Development Agenda.
