    What Did Obama’s Latin America Trip Accomplish?
    by Ari Shapiro

    March 23, 2011 President Obama wound up his tour of Latin America in El Salvador on Wednesday. The president’s trip to South and Central America has been overshadowed by events in Libya, but the administration believes the contacts and agreements made during the tour will benefit the U.S. in the years to come.

  5. Obama offers new U.S. partnership with Latin America

    SANTIAGO (Reuters) – President Barack Obama called on Monday for a “new era of partnership” with Latin America as he acknowledged a sometimes troubled past between Washington and its neighbors in the region.

    But his mission to reassert Washington’s influence south of the border was punctuated by questions over the U.S. role in fierce air assaults over Libya, and aides scrambled to keep him up to speed on the attacks in between talks with heads of state and policy speeches.

    Following a weekend visit to Latin America’s powerhouse Brazil, Obama laid out a vision for deeper trade, investment and political ties with an economically dynamic region where the United States faces growing competition from China.

    “No region is more closely linked than the United States and Latin America,” Obama told reporters after meeting Chilean President Sebastian Pinera in Santiago on Monday.

    Still, there have been no major initiatives and the visit has been overshadowed by the air strikes against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Obama is struggling to balance his handling of world crises, including U.S. military intervention in a third Muslim country, with his domestic priorities of jobs and the economy, considered crucial to his 2012 re-election chances.

    In his speech on Latin America, Obama hailed the transition in Chile and other Latin American countries to stable democracy from military dictatorship as a model for Arab states swept by popular rebellions against autocratic rule.
