Senator Rubio Highlights Need for U.S. to Support Colombia’s Drug War


Senator Marco Rubio is calling for the United States to support Colombia’s war on drugs to ensure regional peace and stability.

This week, Colombian President Iván Duque is scheduled to make his first official visit to Washington, D.C. since being inaugurated last year.

In an op-ed written for the Miami-Herald, Senator Rubio explained that, with President Duque’s trip, both countries will face an opportunity to renew and strengthen their strategic alliance, saying that it “has become all-the-more important as both nations work with the international community to resolve the crisis in Venezuela.”
