Kamala Harris reaches Guatemala after switching planes due to technical issue

Kamala Harris' plane forced to return to US soil following technical issue

She said: "It is a technical issue".

US Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday (local time) arrived in Guatemala after some technical issues with her plane, which caused a minor delay in her first worldwide trip as vice president.

But the plane suffered a technical issue and returned less than an hour later, as reported by the Associated Press.

"I'm good, I'm good".

Harris's spokeswoman Symone Sanders said that the vice president would switch planes and no major delays in her itinerary were expected. "We all said a little prayer, but we're good", said Harris, per AP.

Harris' two-day trip to Central America is part of her efforts to lead diplomatic talks to tackle what the administration describes as the "root causes" of the crisis at the southern border.

Harris' global trip comes amid the United States border crisis, alongside Mexico and Guatemala.

The big picture: The plane technical issue involved "no major safety concerns" and the plane landed safely at the base.
