Abstract

In November 1999 Cuba hosted the 10th Ibero-American Summit, in which approximately 20 Latin American Presidents and Heads of State joined together to discuss the present and future of Ibero-American relations. At the time, the meeting appeared as an ideal opportunity to improve the international image of the Castro government. Retrospectively, however, the gathering represented one of the major diplomatic blows the regime suffered in the 1990s. The pivotal role of the opposition [2], which held parallel meetings with various Presidents, was largely responsible for such a result.
