The Brazil Office of the Attorney General, host of the event, said delegates from Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Mozambique, Panama, Portugal, Peru, Dominican Republic and Venezuela were invited.
The meetings will be held behind closed doors because, according the Office Attorney General, it's an ongoing investigation. The meeting is considered an "unprecedented case of regional cooperation."
