The president of El Salvador, Mauricio Funes, said yesterday that the visit to the country of his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama shows that his government defeated the disinformation campaign and gain the confidence of the U.S., a country considered “as a second home “for Salvadorans.

Funes, who became the first leftist president in the country, at the hands of the FMLN party, will receive Obama on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Obama´s visit is his first visit to Central America, after passing through Brazil and Chile.

In the view of President Funes, the inclusion of El Salvador in the same tour of Latin America put the country “on the same level “of Brazil and Chile, so “we must seize this opportunity to better sell and do better marketing for our country, ”

Funes will address Obama on security issues and migration topics like a better treatment of fellow salvadorans in the U.S.
