Pence is subbing for President Donald Trump after the president pulled out of his first planned visit to Latin America to manage the US response to an apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians in Syria.

The president announced that the U.S., France and Britain launched military strikes in Syria to punish President Bashar Assad for a suspected chemical attack against civilians.

At the Summit of the Americas, Pence will meet Saturday with Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra and President Mauricio Macri of Argentina.

Trump cancelled his trip to the summit on Tuesday, with the White House explaining that he had "to oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world".

Trump had been scheduled to attend the Americas summit but decided this week to send Pence instead so he could remain in the United States to focus on formulating a USA response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria last weekend.

The deputy Minister of Coordination with Social Movements of Bolivia Jose Maria Alessandri, considered the Summit of the Americas since its creation became an instrument of U.S, policy, local media reflect today.

Cuba is present as in the meeting of peoples from the continent, an activity organized independently from the Summit of the Americas, that has taken place since 1998, when its first edition was held in Santiago de Chile.

The US has sanctioned Maduro and dozens of his top officials, accusing Venezuela of human rights abuses and sliding into a dictatorship.

Trudeau is also scheduled to meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto Friday to discuss NAFTA.

Shortly after arriving, Pence met with Venezuelan opposition figures at the US ambassador's residence in Lima, including the former president of the National Assembly, Julio Borges, and former Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezma.

The vice president is expected to urge Latin American leaders to maintain pressure on the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. White House officials said the vice president would emphasize the U.S.as the "partner of choice" in Latin American trade, noting that almost half of the US trade agreements are based in the Western Hemisphere.

Organized by trade unions and social organizations in Peru, the event demonstrates continental solidarity in the face of internal and external threats to which progressive efforts are subjected in our region.

Heritage Foundation senior policy analyst on Latin America and the Western Hemisphere Ana Quintana said Pence would seek to "continue the momentum" of United States policy on Venezuela.
