Clinton 'optimistic' about LatAm, expects soon end of Cuban 'dictatorship'
Former US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, said to be optimistic about the future of democracy in Latin America, and assured that she's still working with President Barack Obama in order to outline "the best proposals for the region."
“I’m working with President Obama on some new initiatives that will show the entire world how much we care about our nearest neighbors.”
“There are many reasons for being optimistic about the institutionalization of democracy in Latin America. It has shown a robust economical growth since the 2008 international financial crisis, plus levels of poverty have been reduced.”
To end, Clinton, who’s seen as a potential presidential candidate for 2016, also remembered that “Unfortunately there is still a dictatorship in Cuba, but we expect it to end shortly.”
