Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos will meet President Trump this afternoon at the White House.
Colombia's government and FARC rebel force warned that a court ruling on their recent peace accord threatens to disrupt efforts to seal an end to a half-century civil war.
Colombia has gone from Latin America's most prolific exporter of instability and criminality to a capable and reliable partner, working with the United States on everything from addressing citizen security in Central America to combating climate change.
After a week of rough headlines, President Trump faced the press during a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. It's a world problem, and we have to all work together.
"I believe the best way to fight drug trafficking is by collaborating", Santos said.
In the past, Colombia has eradicated much greater quantities of coca using a combination of manual and aerial methods.
Trump's remarks came during a meeting with the president of Colombia, where cartel-based violence is a major issue. And certainly Comey had irritated both Democrats and Republicans with his handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe previous year, but we heard from the acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe last week that Comey is still very respected inside the bureau.
Trump also reaffirmed the US' "willingness to assist Colombia's strategy to target and eliminate drug trafficking networks, illicit financings, coca (plant used to make cocaine) cultivation and cocaine production", Efe news reported.
Later, when asked directly about the peace process, Trump said that he thought Santos had "done a fantastic job". "Supporting Colombia is an investment in US security".
The US president spoke to the media for the first time since a series of controversies enveloped the White House earlier this week.
