The only established communist party in the region that did not participate was the Communist Party of Chile, which at time suffered a period of harsh repression under the Ibáñez government.[1]

The conferenced agreed on an analysis of the Latin American political development, considering that the revolution in Latin America ought to be anti-imperialist, agrarian and democratic. The conference also committed itself to an accord of solidarity with the Soviet Union.[1]
