In Peru for summit, Pence Presents Assistance for Attack

Pence Pressing Hard Line on Venezuela, Promoting US Trade as He Steps in for Trump in Latin America

Vice President Mike Pence will represent President Trump at the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, on April 13-14.

The new president of Peru, Martin Vizcarra, inaugurated the Eighth Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, where rulers from the continent's countries discussed diplomatic and trade issues.

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

It will be the first meeting between the two leaders.

Bolivian President Evo Morales, a longtime critic of the United States, joined Cuba in its criticism of USA policy in the region, including the pressure on Venezuela, an ally. "We must all stand with our brothers and sisters suffering in Venezuela". But a coterie of leftists, including Brazil's Lula da Silva, Argentina's Néstor Kirchner, and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, with the support of soccer legend Diego Armando Maradona, buried the idea, arguing that free-trade agreements were an imperialist USA weapon.

Neighboring countries' frustration with Maduro's socialist government has been stoked by the arrival of thousands of hungry migrants across the border into Colombia and Brazil every day.

Pence urged Maduro to accept humanitarian aid as the once-prosperous nation deals with humanitarian and economic crises.

Calling Venezuela "a failed state" where poverty and crime were rampant, Pence said, "The responsibility for the Venezuelan people's suffering can be laid at the feet of one man: Nicolas Maduro".

Maduro was banned from the Lima gathering due to regional censure of his democratic record.

At the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru on Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau backed airstrikes on Syria by the United States and its allies.

Relations between the US and Cuba have regressed after a thaw during former President Barack Obama's administration.

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.

After filing of the case, her father was booked by the police under the arms act on April 3 this year and put in jail on April 5. Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said they were protesting to awaken the Modi government from its "slumber".

Previous efforts to build consensus behind strongly worded condemnations of Venezuela at the OAS have run into resistance not just from Caracas' left-leaning allies such as Cuba and Bolivia, but Caribbean nations that have benefited from Venezuela's subsidized oil programmers.

The main theme was the fight against corruption. The vice president called Maduro's government a "dictatorship" and said the USA would continue to push a hard line against the country's leadership.

The president announced that the U.S., France and Britain launched military strikes in Syria to punish President Bashar Assad for a suspected chemical attack against civilians.

The vice president says Maduro has turned Venezuela into a dictatorship and has brought about "abject misery".

Argentine President Mauricio Macri and Chilean President Sebastian Piñera, among others, repudiated Syria's use of chemical weapons but expressed caution at escalating the situation following the US attacks on Damascus. Brazilian President Michel Temer cited deep concern with the escalation of military conflict in Syria. "It's time to find permanent solutions based in the global law to a war that has been going for far too long and ended too many lives", Temer said.
