The brave president of Argentina walked out of the summit over Falkland Islands... Some Muslim leaders should learn from her how to defend their countries and stand for their rights! Most likely there will be no more Americans summit in years to come. Latin American nations say there may not be another summit unless the US overcomes its objections to Cuba [AFP] Argentina storms out of Americas summit President Cristina Kirchner and Bolivia's Evo Morales walk out with summit already marred by US scandal and Cuba issue. Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner has stormed out of the Summit of the Americas in protest against a perceived lack of regional support for her country's claims in the dispute with the UK over the Falkland Islands. The summit in Colombia had already been marred by a lack of consensus among attendees, with Latin America countries opposing the decades-old US isolation of communist Cuba. Several countries put pressure on Barack Obama to end the ban, as the US president continued to be plagued by a US secret service scandal involving prostitutes. Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman, reporting from Cartagena, said the summit was at risk of "falling apart" after Kirchner's exit. "I suppose the collapse shouldn't be too surprising. There was complete disagreement about signing a final statement but the nail in the coffin came when Cristina Kirchner stormed out of the summit followed by Bolivia's Evo Morales. "[Kirchner] was furious, we are told, because of the lack of full, complete support for Argentina's claim of control of the Falkand Islands," Newman said. "We understand she was very, very angry that [leaders] didn't even mention the dispute over the islands with the UK." "She was overheard saying, 'This is pointless. Why did I even come here?'"
