Colombian President Alvaro Uribe will visit Brazil next
month to meet with his Brazilian counterpart Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva,
a presidential spokesman said Tuesday.
Uribe proposed a visit to Brazil during a 15-minute telephone conversation with Lula earlier in the day, said Marcelo Baumbach.
In December, Uribe had to cancel his

During the conversation, the two
presidents said they are working hard to minimize the impact of the
global financial crisis on their countries, especially the poorer
population, Baumbach said. (Xinhua)
