Brazil says summit sets new era for US-Latam relations
PORT OF SPAIN, April 19 |
PORT OF SPAIN, April 19 (Reuters) - Brazil's President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said on Sunday the Summit of the Americas had created a chance for a new era in relations between the United States and Latin America.
He was speaking at the end of the summit in Trinidad and Tobago where U.S. President Barack Obama said he saw "potential positive signs" U.S. relations with Cuba and Venezuela, and even appeared to win approval from Venezuela's left-wing President Hugo Chavez. The Brazilian leader said the moment was right for talks between Caracas and Washington. (Reporting by Guido Nejamkis, writing by Patrick Markey, editing by Jackie Frank)
