Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said his country and the United States would triple security cooperation in a group of third countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

A White House fact sheet said that the initiative would now encompass six countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, and would involve 152 capacity-building activities.

Obama, meanwhile, praised Colombia's peace efforts under Santos, calling his talks with FARC guerrillas "brave" and "bold."
