As the Summit of the Americas comes to a close in Mar del Plata, Argentina, leaders and delegates from 34 democratic countries are expected to produce a final declaration addressing job creation and possibly free trade.
The summit was set to end on Saturday after two days of talks on improving employment and trade in North, Central, and South America.
Delegates disagreed over whether to include in their final statement a call for renewal of talks on an inter-American free trade agreement. Venezuela and several other nations oppose the idea, but Mexican President Vicente Fox says 29 of the 34 nations support it.
On the streets of Mar del Plata, city workers are cleaning up debris from anti-Bush protests that turned violent Friday. Police arrested more than 60 people, but said there were no major injuries.
