Palenque (Mexico), Oct 22 (EFE).- The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, arrived this Sunday in the Mexican state of Chiapas to participate in the migration summit called by the Government of Mexico with 11 other Latin American countries.

The Venezuelan leader arrived accompanied by his wife, Cilia Flores, to Palenque, where she was received by the Secretary of Welfare of Mexico, Ariadna Montiel, according to a video shared on Maduro's official account on the social network X.

“The head of state will be participating at the invitation of the president of the Aztec nation, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, in the 'Palenque Meeting for a fraternal and well-being neighborhood', which aims at a frank dialogue at the highest level to build regional capacities that generate attention policies for massive human mobility in Latin America,” the video indicated.

A bilateral meeting between López Obrador and Maduro has not been reported on the public agenda, particularly after the visit that Mexican Foreign Minister Alicia Bárcena made last week to Caracas, where they also addressed the resumption of dialogues between the Government of Venezuela and the opposition, in which Mexico is guarantor.

Before Maduro, the Mexican Foreign Ministry reported the arrival, on Saturday night, of the Colombian president, Gustavo Petro, and the Haitian prime minister, Ariel Henry.

The Foreign Minister of Panama, Janaina Tewaney, also arrived; the vice president of El Salvador, Félix Ulloa; the vice prime minister of Belize, Cordel Hyde, and the second vice president of Costa Rica, Mary Munive.

The Foreign Ministry had also confirmed on Friday the attendance of the leaders of Cuba and Honduras, as well as ministers and foreign ministers of Ecuador and Guatemala.

The migration summit is being held while Mexico and Central America face an “unprecedented” migratory flow, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), with up to 16,000 migrants arriving at Mexican borders a day, according to López Obrador.

At the meeting, the Mexican leader seeks a common proposal to later present to the president of the United States, Joe Biden, in November.

On the public agenda of the Government of Mexico, López Obrador will lead the meeting at 12:00 p.m. (18:00 GMT) and at 1:00 p.m. (19:00 GMT) there will be a message to the media from the Mexican chancellor.
