Peru’s president Alan García received his Colombian counterpart, Alvaro Uribe, at the Honor Courtyard of the Government Palace in Lima, where both leaders will hold a working meeting.

Uribe is visiting Peru in order to discuss issues such as terrorism in Colombia and assess its risks for the region,l as well as matters related to Unasur.

The Colombian President is starting this tour (that will lead him to several countries) in Lima, accompanied by the Colombian Foreign Minister Jaime Bermúdez.

He will also meet the presidents of Chile, Michelle Bachelet; Brazil, Luis Inacio Lula da Silva; and Paraguay, Fernando Lugo.

It is worth noting that this is not an official visit, and this is why he did not have the official ceremonial for presidents.
