LIMA (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence announced in Peru on Friday that Washington was giving $16 million to help Venezuelans who have fled the country's economic crisis, some of which would go to host communities in Colombia and Brazil.
Pence was in Lima to attend the Summit of the Americas that gathers regional heads of state on Friday and Saturday. Trump canceled his scheduled visit to the summit to focus on the crisis in Syria.
