Meeting of the Socialist International Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean, Santiago, Chile, 30-31 May 1997
The Socialist International Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean, SICLAC, meeting in Santiago on 30-31 May 1997:
Supports the efforts of the Puerto Rican Independence Party to get legislation approved in the United States Congress that would recognise the present state of political subordination of Puerto Rico and enable the people of Puerto Rico to achieve a solution of full self-government based on the principle of sovereignty and recognition of Puerto Rican nationality;
Reaffirms moreover its unconditional support for the inalienable right of this fraternal Latin American and Caribbean country to self-determination and independence.
