Vizcarra Hosts The Eighth Summit Of The Americas In Lima

In Peru, Pence to brief Latin American leaders on Syria strike

Relations between the countries have also been strained amid mysterious sonic attacks that USA diplomats in Havana said have left them with ailments including headaches, hearing problems and concussions. He added that the US will not "stand by idly" as Venezuela "crumbles" and would work with its regional partners to restore Venezuelans' democratic "birthright".

It will be the first meeting between the two leaders.

Trump and Pena Nieto have yet to meet in person since Trump became president past year.

Pence says, "We want one message to be clear: We are with the people of Venezuela".

Vice President Mike Pence says the United States stands with Venezuelans fleeing the rule of President Nicolas Maduro.

"The US and our allies, I believe, are prepared to do much more", Pence said, accusing Maduro of "refusing humanitarian aid to be delivered to Venezuela".

Opposition leader David Smolansky says Maduro's government "has become a threat to the region".

The vice president said Maduro has turned Venezuela into a dictatorship and has brought about "abject misery". The letter blames those policies for declining support for the U.S.in the region at a time China and Russian Federation are making important inroads.

The funds are through the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development. They include National Assembly President Julio Borges and former Caracas mayor Antonio Ledezma.

Later, speaking in a cavernous hall of world leaders at the Summit of the Americas, Pence expressed gratitude to Canada, Colombia and other nations that had voiced support for the strike and urged "every nation in this hemisphere of freedom" to support the military action. He learned only Tuesday he would be attending in Trump's place therefore that the president would afford the USA response to Syria. And with tensions simmering over trade, Pence expressed hope alongside Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that the three nations could soon agree to a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement.

Vice President Mike Pence says there's a "real possibility" the USA could reach a deal with Canada and Mexico on a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement "within the next several weeks".

He made the comments Saturday at the Summit of Americas taking place in Lima, Peru.

In relation to the worrying developments in Syria, Peru's Foreign Ministry released a statement Saturday saying that it condemns the use of chemical weapons and "makes a call for diplomacy between all the concerned actors to avoid any escalation that would put global peace and security at risk".

In meetings with Latin American leaders, the vice president is expected to promote good governance and democratic institutions.
