Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that “no region in the world, no region is more important to our long-term prosperity and security than our friends in Latin America.”

Speaking at the Atlantic Council, Clinton claimed, “No region is better positioned to emerge as a new force for global peace and progress.”

“I believe that if we look at the Western Hemisphere as a part of the world that is interlinked and interdependent and we work from the middle out, we would carry so much more influence in so many areas of concern and opportunity, and I, for one, would like to see us begin thinking more like that.”
