The Biden administration is said to have invited Spain to the North Korea-US summit scheduled for next month in Los Angeles.

For unrelated and somewhat obscure reasons, Brazilian right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro said He has no plans to attend the summit. Bolsonaro’s possible slander appears to stem primarily from hostility toward President Joe Biden and his administration. Biden threatened to destroy the Brazilian economy in the 2020 US presidential debate. Bolsonaro warned that he was prepared to defend Brazil’s interests with “gunpowder”.
