COLOMBIA: Duque Says Trump Supports His Fight Against Drug Trafficking

06/26/2018 - 14:52:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The elected president of Colombia, Ivan Duque, assured that the president of the United States, Donald Trump, expressed support in the "agenda of the frontal fight against drug trafficking" in a telephone call to congratulate him for his electoral victory.

"Today I received a call by the President of the United States in which he congratulated us for the results achieved in the last elections and also expressed his commitment to support our security, justice agenda, our agenda of the frontal fight against drug trafficking and our agenda of entrepreneurship and equity," Duque told reporters.

This call was made public hours after the White House announced that, according to its estimates, coca cultivation area in Colombia increased 11% in 2017, to reach a record of 209,000 hectares, while the potential production of pure cocaine rose 19%, for up to 921 metric tons.

The deputy director of the Office of National Policy for Drug Control of the White House, Jim Carroll, said that "the message of President Trump to Colombia is clear: must reverse the record growth in the cocaine production."
