A meeting of the heads of state of the Western Hemisphere has ended without a joint declaration.

The leaders failed to reach agreement on whether Cuba should attend the next gathering.

The US and Canada opposed demands by the Latin American nations to invite Cuba to the next Summit of the Americas to be held in Panama in 2015.

Cuba was excluded from participation in the Organization of American States, which runs the summits, 50 years ago.
