The US Undersecretary for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland, begins this Monday a trip to Jamaica, Ecuador and Colombia, in which she will meet with officials from the three countries, including Presidents Guillermo Lasso and Gustavo Petro.

The State Department said in a statement that the trip will begin in Jamaica, where she will meet Tuesday in Kingston with Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Foreign Minister Kamina Johnson-Smith.

Nuland will participate in a strategic dialogue between the two countries to enhance trade and investment, strengthen regional security, combat transnational criminal organizations, and combat climate change.

In addition, she will participate in a virtual meeting with members of the Caribbean Community and Canadian officials to discuss the crisis of violence in Haiti.

On Wednesday, Nuland will travel to Quito, Ecuador, to meet with President Guillermo Lasso and Foreign Minister Juan Carlos Holguín and will sign an Open Skies Agreement with which it is intended to pave the way for bilateral trips that facilitate trade, job creation and economic growth.

There, a political dialogue will be held in which issues such as democratic governance, regional security, human rights, migration management and support for vulnerable populations will be discussed.

After Ecuador, Nuland will travel to Colombia on the 17th and 18th, to the cities of Bogotá and Cartagena. She will meet with President Gustavo Petro and also with Foreign Minister Álvaro Leyva and will participate in the closing ceremony of the visit of the US Navy hospital ship, the USNS Comfort.

With them she will discuss shared priorities, including regional security, building strong democratic institutions, socioeconomic and political inclusion of Afro-Colombians and indigenous people, and the importance of implementing the 2016 Peace Agreement.
