  • US delegation arrives in Peru for Summit of the Americas in renewed trade push

This assistance will help provide the people of Venezuela safe drinking water, hygiene supplies, shelter, protection from violence and exploitation, and work and education opportunities, in coordination with other humanitarian organizations and government partners.

Opposition leader David Smolansky says Maduro's government "has become a threat to the region". In Venezuela, President Maduro has been accused of rushing through a slew of contracts with Odebrecht, while in Colombia some lawmakers have been jailed because of an Odebrecht inquiry.

Trump cancelled his trip to the summit on Tuesday, with the White House explaining that he had "to oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world".

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday told business leaders meeting in Peru's capital that under the right conditions the U.S. would reconsider joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, despite Trump's earlier decision to back away from an initial deal. Pence's meeting with Pena Nieto will follow Trump's calls to send National Guard troops to the border.

In a series of meetings with Latin American leaders, Pence plans to promote good governance and democratic institutions and urge allies to maintain pressure on Maduro.

The U.S. vice president says Maduro has turned Venezuela into a dictatorship.

Metal object in fatal NY police shooting was a welding torch
The chain of events that ended with Vassell dying at the corner of Utica Avenue and Montgomery Street began around 4:40 p.m. The police shooting of Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man, ignited protests in Sacramento, Calif., that have lasted weeks.

Pence says he will be calling on USA allies to provide additional humanitarian aid during the Summit of the Americas in Lima.

Antonio Ledezma, the former mayor of Caracas, pleaded with Pence through a translator to bolster sanctions against Maduro, asking for "not only humanitarian aid but humanitarian intervention". In addition to Pena Nieto, Pence is also planning to meet in Lima with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The high-level gathering in Lima on Friday and Saturday is expected to focus in part on the crisis in Venezuela and regional measures to further isolate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his administration.

Pence is departing for the Summit of the Americas in Lima on Friday.

He also commented that it is a paradox that the central issue of the Summit is "Democratic governability in face of corruption", because the hosting nation recently lived the resignation of its then President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, due to a scandal of this type.
