Bolivian President Evo Morales arrived in Bogota for his first official visit to Colombia Thursday.
“On behalf of the Bolivian people, a greeting to the people of Colombia and salute to the Government and all the social forces of the Republic of Colombia,” Morales said in a statement from El Dorado airport.
Morales is set to meet Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos to discuss the strengthening of technical, scientific and cultural ties between the two South American nations. The meeting’s agenda is expected to include the international drug trade and the 6th Summit of the Americas, taking place in Cartagena next month.
The Bolivian president’s visit coincided with the centenary of a bilateral friendship treaty signed between the two countries.
Morales is also scheduled to meet Bogota Mayor Gustavo Petro and visit the Colombia’s Congress.
