Brasilia, Brazil Brazil's leader says U.S. policies toward Latin America have changed little since President Obama took office, disappointing many hoping for more engagement.

President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva says the U.S. vision of Latin America has "changed little or not at all" though the region has gone through what he calls the world's most important democratization process.

Silva's words Monday come just days before he hands power to his political protege Dilma Rousseff, elected in October.

Silva says he advised Obama at a 2009 summit in Trinidad and Tobago to pay more attention to Latin America. But a year later, Silva says he is saddened by the lack of attention Obama is giving to the region.
