The letter also chastises the Trump administration for deep cuts in foreign aid, ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for so-called "Dreamers" and for its decision to plow ahead with plans to build a wall on the border of Mexico.

Pence was to leave Lima late Saturday after bilateral meetings with other leaders.

Pence said they simply had a difference of opinion and some issues were "set aside, for a later date". That adds further tensions as the neighbors, along with Canada, work to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. He visited Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Panama in August.

"The U.S. and our allies, I believe, are prepared to do much more", Pence said, accusing Maduro of "refusing humanitarian aid to be delivered to Venezuela".

Trudeau's trip to Peru is focused on drumming up investment in Canada and the prime minister is expected to play the role of salesman-in-chief by addressing participants of the III CEO Summit of the Americas "Invest in Canada" session, PMO officials said.

Trump said on Thursday the NAFTA talks between Canada, Mexico and the USA were "coming along great" and "we're getting pretty close to a deal".

The two-day Lima summit, which was to wrap up later Saturday, took place without its most prominent guest: US President Donald Trump. 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.

Mexico's president says "the door is open" for the United States to join a Pacific Rim trade deal that was initially rejected by U.S. President Donald Trump.

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

The International Organization for Migration says almost one million Venezuelans have left the country over the past two years.

The total US humanitarian response to the Venezuela crisis comes to more than $21 million since the 2017 fiscal year.

An economic collapse in Venezuela is driving about 100,000 people per month to flee the country controlled by socialist President Nicolas Maduro.

This year's summit was one of the least attended yet, raising questions about the future of the regional gathering started in 1994 by then-U.S. President Bill Clinton. The U.S. led a missile strike in Syria earlier Saturday.

Pence had been scheduled to attend a banquet hosted by Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra on Friday night, and it was not immediately clear if he would still attend. He was sworn in after Peru's congress voted to accept the resignation of President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski after a corruption scandal.

Vice President Mike Pence will represent President Trump at the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, on April 13-14.

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