Caracas, Jun 21 (Prensa Latina) In order to promote subregional integration, the Venezuela Group of Latin American Parliament (PARLATINO) announced Monday several activities to mark the bicentennial of the national declaration of independence.

President and vice President of Parlatino Venezuela, Rodrigo Cabezas and Ana Elisa Osorio, respectively, said in a press conference that festivities will begin on June 22 to commemorate the Day of the Latin American and Caribbean Unity.

A Special Session of the legislative body to mark the anniversary 185 of the Congress of Panama, convened by Simon Bolivar, will be held Wednesday, Cabezas said.

Also on Wednesday, representatives of Bolivia, Panama, Nicaragua, Argentina, Cuba and Chile will show their typical dance and music around the headquarters of the National Assembly.
