Central America’s governments line up to meet Obama
Central American leaders are putting in their request for a group meeting with U.S. President-elect Barack Obama, Guatemalan authorities said.
Guatemala´s foreign minister, Haroldo Rodas, said that embassies of Central American countries in Washington, D.C., have begun placing formal requests to meet Obama.
“It has been difficult,” said Rodas, to set a date for the meeting due to Obama´s tight schedule, but the bloc will continue trying until they receive a positive response.
Rodas said the region is interested in talking to Obama about issues related to immigration, security, trade and the world financial crisis.
