Venezuelan president praises Mexico for snubbing Americas summit

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro congratulated his Mexican counterpart for skipping the Americas Summit on Monday.

Maduro applauded Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s “clarity and boldness” in a video message broadcast to his Twitter account, adding that the US’s failure to invite countries like Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela to the summit “was an act of prejudice.”

The summit will be held in Los Angeles, California which started Monday and will run through June 10.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador announced his decision to not attend the event at a press briefing on Monday, sending the country’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard in his stead.
