Statement from U.S. Embassy Spokesperson

“The Embassy of the United States of America categorically denies allegations made in a recording recently released on the Nuevas Ideas twitter account. 

The persons speaking in the audio are not representatives of the U.S. Embassy. 

The U.S. Embassy does not support one political party over another and meets with a wide variety of Salvadoran government officials and private citizens as is normal of all diplomatic relations. 

Our goal in El Salvador remains the same as it has been for years: create opportunities and help improve security so Salvadorans are not forced to leave their country.”
