Jarrod Agen, Pence's deputy chief of staff and communications director, said Pence left the opening ceremony for the Summit of the Americas to place phone calls to Congressional leadership. The meeting with Pence was announced on Friday and follows Trump's push to deploy National Guard troops to the U.S. -Mexico border to fight illegal immigration and drug smuggling.

Pence later met with Caribbean leaders before departing Lima to return to Washington.

"I was seeing reports of some empty speeches by right-wing, unpopular, murderous, imperialist lackey presidents", Maduro said during his Saturday speech.

He says President Donald Trump is sending his regrets that he couldn't attend the summit.

Besides being overshadowed by the strikes against Syria, the summit was dominated by discussions of the Trump administration's trade war against China. The letter blames those policies for declining support for the U.S.in the region at a time China and Russian Federation are making important inroads. He was sworn in after Peru's congress voted to accept the resignation of President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski after a corruption scandal.

US Vice President Mike Pence abruptly skipped an official banquet in Peru late Friday ahead of a summit with Latin American leaders, as President Donald Trump announced he had ordered air strikes on Syria.

Pence was whisked away from the Summit of the Americas late Friday so he could inform USA congressional leaders by phone of Trump's plans to announce the missile strikes.

And while Trump grapples with the ongoing Russian Federation investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, Pence sought to draw a bright line against Vladimir Putin's alliance with Syria following the suspected chemical attack.
