Washington: Los Angeles has been chosen by the Biden administration to host this year’s Summit of the Americas, a key gathering that U.S. officials hope will help mend diplomatic fences in the Western Hemisphere. The White House announced Tuesday night that the meeting - to be held on U.S. soil for the second time since the forum was created nearly three decades ago - will take place in early June in Los Angeles. The administration cited the city’s “deep and robust” ties throughout the hemisphere as one of the reasons it was selected, according to a White House official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the matter ahead of the formal announcement.
