Shifter: “Cooperación de Estados Unidos con América Latina contra la pandemia debe estar en la agenda de Biden.”

El presidente del Diálogo Interamericano, Michael Shifter, consideró este jueves que la cooperación de Estados Unidos con América Latina para enfrentar la pandemia del nuevo coronavirus debería estar en la agenda del mandatario estadounidense Joe Biden. En entrevista con el programa “Ampliación de Noticias” de RPP, Shifter sostuvo que Biden reconstruirá alianzas que se habían debilitado o destruido en los últimos cuatro años en política exterior, ya que el expresidente Donald Trump tenía una posición “muy unilateral” para tratar problemas.
