Brazil Joins Colombia to Fight Drugs

Brazil’s President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva said that he considers yesterday summit in Ciudad Guayana, in Venezuela, “fundamental to consolidate the integration of South America through an infrastructure policy.”

The meeting was with Presidents ílvaro Uribe (Colombia), José Luis Zapatero (Spain), and Hugo Chávez (Venezuela).


During a press conference, Lula stated that the problem Colombia currently faces with drug trafficking and terrorism is “everyone’s problem.”


And that Brazil will do everything possible to help fighting organized crime: “Brazil proposes a joint effort with Colombia and Venezuela to solve this serious problem in our continent.”


According to the President, Brazil is supportive of Colombian government’s struggle, who wants a pacific solution for the conflict.


“We are at the disposal of the Colombian government, and only with their approval, we will participate in any negotiation,” he said.


When commenting about the relationship between South and North American countries, Lula said, “every country knows the importance of their individual relationship with the United States.”


He stated that the US is one of Brazil’s most important commercial partners, along with the European Union and China: “What we are doing is extending this relationship, not to become dependent on a single commercial bloc.”
