Mexico: AMLO plans regional meeting of Latin America pols

Source: ABC News

“Mexico’s president said Monday he will host a meeting of leaders from Latin America this month, including most of the wave of recently elected leftists. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the presidents of Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia are coming to Mexico City. Lopez Obrador said he is still awaiting confirmation on whether President-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva of Brazil will attend the Nov. 23-25 meeting. All of the leaders except Ecuador’s President Guillermo Lasso are considered left-leaning. Lopez Obrador has expressed hopes in the past of reforming the Organization of American States, and this month’s meeting may be part of that plan. Lopez Obrador views the OAS as too subordinated to U.S. interests and has touted other regional bodies, like the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States as a possible alternative.” (11/07/22)
