President López Obrador confirms he’ll skip Summit of the Americas

Mexico, SANA-When leaders gather at the Summit of the Americas this week, the focus is likely to veer from policy issues — migration, climate change and galloping inflation — and instead shift to something Hollywood thrives on; the drama of the red carpet.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador confirmed Monday that he will not show up, dealing a blow to the event hosted by U.S. President Biden.

López Obrador said it was concerns over the guest list that led him to skip. He wanted Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela to be invited,  Other leaders also have indicated they’ll stay away if not all are invited.

Experts say the event could turn into an embarrassment for Biden.
