“You don’t have to start all over”: former ambassador Lozano

In front of Ricardo Lozano, Colombia’s former ambassador to Venezuela, restoring relations with the neighboring country requires a long-term plan and “state policy”. “It cannot be that every time a president changes in Colombia and Venezuela, relations change. It must be a plan with clear, concrete goals and with a follow-up, i.e. everything counts,” he emphasized.

In his opinion, the first thing the Colombian government should do is: “aligning the public sector” because then there is the Presidency, the Ministry of Relations, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Foreign Trade, the whole issue of covid protocols at the border, and many entities are involved like Dian, Migration, etc. Therefore we have to speak the same language.”
