The meeting was postponed from the early morning, to 4:00 PM and then to next Saturday, because Señor Hugo’s plane broke in Bolivia, and no one can’t find the parts to fix it.

“They have spoken, and concluded that they’ll meet next Saturday, here in Cartagena, because it is uncertain if the plane will manage to take-off tonight, so as to meet tomorrow” Said María Angela Holguín, Colombia’s Foreign Relations Minister.

According to Holguín, Hugo Chavéz confimed president Juan Manuel Santos that it has not been possible to find the spare parts needed to fix the aircraft.

The Latin American leaders had planned today’s encounter to discuss bi-lateral efforts in the war against drugs, and trade relations between the two countries.
