Joe Biden firmly backs Colombia peace effort

Thursday, June 19, 2014

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden pledged firm support Wednesday for Colombia's newly re-elected leader and the peace process on which he has bet his presidency.

After a meeting of more than two hours with President Juan Manuel Santos, Biden also visited a center dedicated to chronicling Colombia's half-century-old conflict by focusing on its victims, and said true peace can only be secured with a full accounting.

The two also discussed building on a 2-year-old free trade agreement, including expanding energy cooperation.
