VP Pence, U.N. Envoy Haley Urge Greater Engagement In Latin America

Vice President Mike Pence urges stronger economic and political ties between the U.S. and Latin American countries.
Speaking at the Council of the Americas Wednesday, Pence called for unity and freedom across the western hemisphere.
He also urged a crackdown on the Maduro regime in Venezuela, along with organized crime and trans-national drug operations in the region.
He also pledged greater economic cooperation with Latin America, including the U.S. commitment to updating NAFTA.
The vice president’s remarks were echoed by United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.

“While a lot of attention is placed on trade with China, we should keep in mind that we trade nearly 3 times as much with the Western hemisphere as we do with China,” she stated. “We are also dependent on each other for security, stopping drugs, gangs and terrorists from crossing our borders.”
Vice President Pence and Ambassador Haley also called for a greater engagement in Latin America on behalf of U.S. national interest.
