President Ch?vez Visits Colombia to Meet With President Santos

The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, arrived in Colombia on Tuesday to meet with his new Colombian counterpart, Juan Manuel Santos.

This first official meeting has the main purpose of re-establishing respect between both governments, as well as diplomatic and commercial relations.

The Venezuelan president landed in the Simón Bolívar airport of Santa Marta, the city located in northern Colombia, and was received by the Colombian Foreign Minister María Ángela Holguín and her Venezuelan counterpart Nicolás Maduro.

President Chávez said that his meeting with Santos means that they will rebuild “what had crumbled.”

Venezuela broke off relations with Colombia on July 22 after the President Alvaro Uribe’s government leveled accusations regarding the alleged presence of Colombian irregular groups in Venezuelan territory.

For his part, President Santos recently showed his intention to open a frank and direct dialogue to solve the crisis with Venezuela.
