RUBIO MEETS WITH LATIN AMERICAN PRESIDENTS, DELIVERS LETTER FROM LADIES IN WHITE
Washington, D.C. – Today, at the Summit of the Americas, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio met with Paraguay President Fernando Lugo and Chilean President Sebastián Piñera.
During his meeting with President Piñera, Rubio hand delivered an open letter from the Ladies in White to the presidents of the hemisphere, calling attention to the Castro regime’s deplorable human rights record. The letter also asks the democratic leaders of the region to exclude Cuba from future summits as long as the regime continues to deny the Cuban people the freedoms enjoyed by others throughout the hemisphere.

Rubio also met with members of the Colombian Congress, with a high resolution photo of the meeting available here. He also toured the Port of Cartagena, a hub of trade between the U.S. and Colombia. A high resolution photo taken after the port tour can be found here.
