Mexican President to participate in meeting on drugs in Colombia

Bogota, Sep 8 (Prensa Latina) Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador will participate in the Latin American and Caribbean Conference on Drugs 'For life, Peace and Development' in Colombia.

The President is expected to arrive in the afternoon at the International Airport of Cali, where the event is taking place.

The Conference seeks proposals from various entities and representatives of 15 countries to define a roadmap towards a world summit that rethinks drug policies.

López Obrador will meet with Colombian President Gustavo Petro, with whom he shares the concept of the failure of the war on drugs.

The Colombian head of State affirms that the war on drugs failed, which is why he considers it necessary to establish a new approach in the fight against narcotics, which implies changing the focus of efforts and promoting his state policy, called “From the war on drugs to the care for life.”

The meeting is expected to become the beginning of a regional process of dialogue and participation based on the principle of common and shared responsibility, which will be an example for the international community with a new vision that puts life, peace and development above war.

Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic, Uruguay and Venezuela, among others, will participate in the event, along with a group of observer countries.
