Obama shakes hands with Rousseff at their meeting during the Summit of the Americas in Panama City, PanamaU.S. President Barack Obama said on Saturday that Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff will visit Washington on June 30, raising hopes of closer ties that could increase trade between the two biggest economies in the Americas. Obama made the announcement during a meeting between the two leaders on the sidelines of a regional summit in Panama City. The leftist Brazilian leader canceled a state visit to the United States in October 2013, after she was angered by revelations that U.S. spies had tapped her personal communications. U.S. officials believe a strong demonstration of support for Brazil will eventually unlock greater access to its $2.2 trillion economy, Latin America’s biggest.
