CARTAGENA, Colombia - Cuba's allies in Latin America declared on Saturday that they would stay away from future hemispheric summits if the communist island nation was not invited to attend.

Increasing calls to end the ostracism of Cuba was a source of division at this weekend's sixth Summit of the Americas organized by the 34-nation Organization of American Sates (OAS) attended by US President Barack Obama.

The United States and Canada oppose inviting Cuba to the summits which have a democratic clause excluding governments that are not democratically elected.
