Obama Headed to South America in March
President Barack Obama will travel to Latin America this March which will be his first trip to the area and also come on the anniversary of President John f. Kennedy’s outreach to Latin American nations though his Alliance for Progress.
Obama’s itinerary includes stops in Brazil, Chile and El Salvador. He attended a 2009 Latin American summit in Trinidad and Tobago. At the time, he vowed to recast the U.S. relationship with the region.
Both Chile and Brazil have elected new presidents in the past year.
The region has typically received less attention from U.S. presidents, who have been more concerned with strategic interests in the Middle East and developing relationships with European and Asian industrial economies, according to a Washington Post article.Tell us what you think in the comments below or on:
