Joe Biden invited Juan Guaidó to his extraordinary summit of the world's democracies.

The US president wants the president in charge of Venezuela to represent the Caribbean country at the event.

After arriving at the White House in January of this year, Biden decided to maintain the recognition of Guaidó as interim president that his predecessor, Donald Trump, expressed in 2019; But during these months, it has not made Venezuela a priority of its foreign policy.

US President Joe Biden invited Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó to the summit of the leaders of the world's democracy against authoritarianism, the head of US diplomacy for Latin America, Brian A. Nichols, said on Tuesday.

Nichols made these statements at a hearing of the Senate Foreign Committee in response to the president of that entity, Democrat Bob Menéndez, who expressly asked him if the summit of democracies would have the participation of Guaidó which the United States and other countries recognize. As interim president of Venezuela.

"That is correct, Mr. President. And he (Guaidó) will be one of the announcers at that event," Nichols replied. The summit of democracies will be held virtually between December 9 and 10. It will focus on three themes: defense against authoritarianism, the fight against corruption, and the promotion of respect for human rights, as explained by the White House.

Following this meeting, Biden will invite world leaders once again and after a year of consultations to see the progress made on their commitments. Heads of State, civil society, philanthropists, and leaders of the private sector are invited to both appointments.

By holding these two summits, Biden intends to realize one of the principles that guide his foreign policy: the idea that the United States should guide international efforts to fight corruption, defend democracies against authoritarianism and protect human rights.

After arriving at the White House in January of this year, Biden decided to maintain the recognition of Guaidó as interim president that his predecessor, Donald Trump, expressed in 2019; But during these months, it has not made Venezuela a priority of its foreign policy.

Instead, Biden has focused on China, which he sees as his great competitor for world hegemony.
