Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs Elías Jaua held on Friday a meeting with his Colombian counterpart María Ángela Holguín. During a press conference, Holguín, in the name of her government, jumped in solidarity with the Venezuelan government and people. "We expect President (Hugo) Chávez to get well," she said.

During the rendezvous, both senior government officers reported on upcoming working meetings with the governors of the states located on the Venezuela-Colombia border. They explained that the purpose is to discuss the issues of fuel and security.

"Specific needs; should we advance as countries, the quality of life of border communities could be better," Holguín reasoned.

For his part, Jaua noted that the Andean Development Corporation endorsed a grant to carry out a feasibility study on the construction of the Tienditas building, in Andean Táchira state. The goal, he added, is "to bolster a new, wide, streamlined communication way between the two countries."

The foreign ministers also reported that on February 27-28, the Managing Committee of the Trade Agreement is scheduled to hold a meeting.
