Pence announces $16M in aid for refugees fleeing Venezuela
Ivanka Trump, daughter and advisor to US President Donald Trump, on Friday announced a private-public funding plan to boost businesses started by women in Latin America.
With the White House's encouragement, Maduro has been barred from the summit over his plans to hold a presidential election that the opposition is boycotting and that many foreign governments consider a sham.
Mexico's president says "the door is open" for the United States to join a Pacific Rim trade deal that was initially rejected by U.S. President Donald Trump.
Peru's decision to withdraw the invitation to Venezuela and, by extension, to President Nicolas Maduro, is reminiscent of the time when Cuba was excluded from that mechanism of debate established in Miami in 1994, under the auspices of the United States and the Organization of American States (OAS). As a hemisphere we must increase our support for the well-being of the Venezuelan people and the restoration of their democracy. Pence's meeting with Pena Nieto will follow Trump's calls to send National Guard troops to the border.
According to the US State Department, the United States is providing $16 million in extra funding for humanitarian assistance for Venezuelans who have fled as economic conditions worsen.
The first leader to arrive in the Peruvian capital was Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno, who returned to home hours later to monitor closely the case of kidnapped journalists, summit organizers told reporters.
Pence is in Lima for an global summit. The Summit of the Americas intends to continue strengthening the bonds which unite the area; and which may turn the continent into one of the most important markets in the world, by affording stability to the region, and furthering the development of growing markets. That adds further tensions as the neighbors, along with Canada, work to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. He'll also discuss the influence of Chinese trade in the region.
Trudeau spoke at a meeting of hemispheric CEOs on Friday and celebrated the fact that several countries in the hemisphere have shared his government's vision that free trade agreements unlock tangible benefits and middle-class jobs.
The senators encourage Trump to drop an "America First" policy they say is divisive "and embrace instead an "Americas together" policy".
