Vice President Pence and Panamanian President Varela

The last stop of Vice President Mike Pence's Latin American trip was to Panama City, where Second Lady Karen Pence and he had the opportunity to visit the Cocoli Locks at the Panama Canal. Panama's President, Juan Carlos Varela, and the Vice President then met. Vice President Pence told President Varela how grateful President Donald J. Trump and he are for Panama's participation in the global Coalition to Defeat ISIS. Today, Panama is the only Latin American country in the coalition, and the Vice President called on all partners across Latin America to follow Panama’s example of leadership and join this global coalition.
