Secretary's Travel to Latin America

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will travel to Latin America, April 26-30, 2005. During this time, she will visit Brazil, Colombia, Chile and El Salvador. The Secretary will highlight support for democracy, free trade and sustainable development in the region and beyond. As we support democracy with our Latin American partners in the hemisphere and beyond, we all recognize the need for democracy to deliver the opportunity, safety and freedom that people deserve. Within this context, the Secretary will discuss how to enhance our cooperation on such issues as drug trafficking and crime, poverty reduction, education and environmental protection. On her visit to Chile, she will also head the U.S. delegation to the Community of Democracies Ministerial Meeting.
