Clinton Discusses Solutions for Colombia's Civil War in Cartagena - 2002-06-29

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is in the Colombian port city of Cartagena to discuss ways the private sector can help the country resolve its long civil war.

Under heavy security, Mr. Clinton was met at the airport, late Friday, by President Andres Pastrana. The two are scheduled to address the conference.

This is Mr. Clinton's second trip to Cartagena. Two years ago he met with President Pastrana at the colonial port city to inaugurate "Plan Colombia," an ambitious anti-drug effort funded in part with nearly $2 billion of U.S. aid.

Mr. Clinton is scheduled to end his visit later Saturday.
