He further mentioned of the NAFTA wall being built up at the US-Mexico border while saying that United States, Mexico, and Canada are close to renegotiating a new NAFTA deal.

Pence attended the Summit when President Trump canceled his visit as he had to craft an official statement and take an action against the Syrian chemical attack.

He said the strike was "effective, overwhelming and successful", and that Syrian President Bashar Assad "and his patrons would do well not to test our resolve" to deter the use of chemical weapons in the future.

For his part, Pence thanked Canada for backing the strikes and echoed Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron in saying Syria's chemical-weapons facilities had been "degraded and crippled".

As for next steps for the summit, Pence said the USA would be submitting a bid to host the ninth Summit of the Americas and repeated a familiar line about the Trump doctrine: "America First does not mean America alone". Maduro has been barred from the summit over his plans to hold a presidential election that the opposition is boycotting and that many foreign governments consider a sham.

Pence told Pena Nieto he looked forward to discussing the North American Free Trade Agreement and a "broad range of issues".

This comes two months after an attempt to schedule a meeting in Washington between Pena Nieto and the U.S. president was called off due to Trump's harsh rhetoric regarding NAFTA and immigration.

"We are very close to the kind of breakthrough on issues of immigration, drug interjection" that will be of benefit to both sides, Pence said. Pence, meanwhile, tends to be more scripted in his exchanges and frequently glanced down at highlighted index cards as he spoke to Latin American leaders here.
