Subject: VPOTUS pool 2a: Santiago arrival time correction, runway greetings

Correction: local time is one hour ahead of ET; plane landed at 11.04 local. (Air Force Two guidance on local time was incorrect; VP staff and folks on the ground knew better.)

US Ambassador to Chile Carol Perez greeted Mr. Pence on the plane. The Pences descended at 11.25 local time.

Runway greeters were:
Minister of Foreign Affairs Heraldo Munoz
Juan Gabriel Valdez, Chile's ambassador to US
Chile's Protocol Ambassador Gloria Navarrete
Hugo Rodriguez, Commandant Gen of the Air Force of Santiago

Motorcade on the move as of 11.30.

Air Force Two touched down at 10.04 local time in Santiago.

Near the end of the flight communications director Jarrod Agen told reporters that Mr. Pence would not be taking questions at the joint event with President Michelle Bachelet.

This had been billed as a press conference on the vice president's schedule; Mr. Agen said that it would take the form of joint statements and had never been set to include questions -- at the Chileans' request.
