This Sunday’s meeting also served to strengthen bilateral relations and review the agenda of strategic cooperation between the two nations, which was undertaken once Caracas and Bogotá decided to reestablish their diplomatic ties.
Relations between the two nations were reestablished in various areas with the arrival of Gustavo Petro to the Colombian presidency. This new scenario led to the signing of many new agreements on trade, migration, and border security.
