SANSALVADOR – The head of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Samantha Power, said on Tuesday she had met Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele and that he had shown readiness to discuss a “better path forward.”

Power said she had held a constructive meeting with Bukele and that they had had “frank, wide-ranging” talks that broached U.S. concerns about democratic governance.

“Appreciate his willingness to discuss a better path forward,” Power said, writing on Twitter.
