Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Latin American and Caribbean leaders agreed at their Mexico summit this week to set up the Community of Latin America and Caribbean States.
The proposed new body excludes the United States and Canada, and has been described by analysts and others as an alternative to the OAS.
But Grenada's Foreign Minister Peter David has told BBC Caribbean that the intention is not to replace the OAS but to have "more closer collaboration in other fora".

He also set out to clarify the position on the diplomatic row between Britain and Argentina conflict over the Falklands Islands.
According to Mr David, rather than support for Argentina, the Caribbean and Latin American states favour UN arbitration over the issue.
