Obama will be focus of Americas summit in Panama

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

President Obama will find himself in perhaps the strongest diplomatic position in years for a U.S. leader when he travels to Jamaica and Panama this week, the result of broad, more intense American engagement in a region that’s long seen itself as neglected.

Cameras will whir and click when Obama greets Cuban leader Raúl Castro in Panama on Friday at the Summit of the Americas. But that’s only one of the issues that matter greatly to the 34 other heads of state or envoys.
