Colombia to attend regional meeting on its row with Venezuela

07-28-2010 10:16 BJT

BOGOTA, July 27 (Xinhua) -- Colombia confirmed Tuesday it will attend a regional meeting aimed at solving its ongoing diplomatic crisis with Venezuela.

"Colombia will attend the meeting of foreign ministers convened on (next) Thursday and will discuss punctually this mechanism of cooperation in the fight against armed groups," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

To find a solution to the Colombia-Venezuela crisis, foreign ministers from South American Nations Union (Unasur) countries are scheduled to meet on Aug. 5 in Quito, Ecuador.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro, who is on a seven-nation trip in Latin America, had said he would present a regional peace plan at the meeting. But details of the plan are not available.

Caracas cut off diplomatic relations with Bogota last week after the latter accused it of hosting Colombian guerilla chiefs on its soil and requested the Organization of American States (OAS) to investigate.
