This is the most important U.S. delegation to visit Colombia since the inception of Plan Colombia in 2000 and demonstrates what is to come for Colombia within the U.S. regional security regime and global strategy.

Even to many who paid attention to the rest of Latin America, Central America was terra incognita into the 1970s.
