Latin American Agro Summit Suspended Due to AMLO’s Health


Despite the fact that the government has maintained that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) is in “good health” and will likely be declared covid-19-free later this week, the Mexican Foreign Relations Secretariat (SRE) announced Tuesday, April 25, that the First High-Level Meeting for the Agri-Food Integration of Latin America had been suspended due to the president’s contagion.

In a press release Tuesday, SRE reported that the meeting, scheduled to be held in Cancun on May 6 and 7, could take place until June.

The press release said that the decision to cancel the meeting was based on the state of health of the president.

The cancellation was announced despite the fact that Mexican Secretary of the Interior Adán Augusto López said earlier in the day that AMLO could return to his activities “in two or three days.”
