# 039 Pence &Off-ice confuses Peru's president Beforehand of summit

Cuba has a voice and a face in Peru

Vizcarra himself only recently took power after former President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski resign following revelations he'd failed to disclose payments to his private consulting company from Odebrecht, the Brazilian construction giant at the center of Latin America's biggest graft scandal.

Dozens of pro-Castro supporters were also present in Lima and on Thursday raucously interrupted a meeting to protest what they consider Cuba's mistreatment by the Washington-based Organization of American States.

Mexico also is taking part in a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement with the USA and Canada due to demands for changes from Trump. After the USA pulled out, 11 countries reached a revised deal last month that dropped some clauses that had been meant to benefit the United States.

During that time, Latin America has seen turmoil in many countries related to corruption - including the resignation of Peru's previous president three weeks ago, the jailing of Brazil's former president a week ago, and increased scrutiny on Guatemala's current president by a UN-backed body.

The Lima Commitment on "Democratic Governability Against Corruption" was a sign of the "firm will" of the region to vanquish graft, Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra told the gathering.

The White House said on Tuesday that Trump had made a decision to call off his trip to Peru - which would have been his first trip to Latin America as president - to focus on Syria following a suspected chemical weapons attack.

Pence pivoted to the US response to the suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria as he sought to build support for further isolating Venezuela, which has faced USA sanctions amid a political crisis led by President Nicolas Maduro.

It will be the first meeting between the two leaders.

Sadly no representative was sent to attend the event, except the officials of the local government council who are here with us". The women took their numbers on Saturday morning in a procession around the school where the girls were abducted four years ago.

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.

Despite the mistake, Pence in his speech said that it was time for the region to do more to isolate President Nicolas Maduro, who he said was single-handedly responsible for the humanitarian crisis plaguing the oil-rich nation.

"No one wants to do bilateral trade deals with the United States, and Trump had no Plan B", said Robert Manning, an Asia expert and senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.

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.

Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet is presently in attendance at the Summit which will address the central theme of "Democratic Governance against Corruption".

Pence in a visit to Colombia last August did meet and pray with struggling Venezuelan migrants in a trip to Cartagena.

Early on Friday morning, the White House corrected the error.
