El Salvador president rules out talks with criminal gangs

El Salvador President Nayib Bukele ruled out negotiations with criminal gangs on Tuesday and vowed to go after their finances in a bid to reduce violence in the country. Bukele, 37, took office this month pledging to bring down a sky-high murder rate and reduce poverty, corruption and mass migration to the US. ’We are not open to having a dialogue with criminal groups’, said Bukele.
