The fight against illegal groups on the Venezuelan-Colombian border is a priority to rebuild ties between the two nations, Colombia's president-elect Gustavo Petro said.
Speaking to local station W Radio, Petro said, "There are some priority issues: opening trade on the border, recovering the border for both sides, which implies moving, cornering and evicting the armed groups that today are on both sides of the border of an illegal nature."
The elected president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, said in an interview with a local radio station that he considers that one of the priorities for getting relations with Venezuela back on course is to combat illegal groups on the border of both countries.
In the interview, Petro made known that shortly after being elected, he had a conversation with Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro; however, no specific issues were discussed on that occasion, Petro said.
