    Latin America News – In his visit to Colombia this week, Vice President Joe addressed the South American nation struggles to control a violent security situation that pitted left-wing guerrillas against right-wing paramilitary groups and wealthy drug traffickers against the central government.

    Speaking in the country’s capital on Monday, Biden noted how things have changed in the country and said that he’s pleased security efforts and the U.S. can now take a back seat in trade and economic issues in talks with Colombia.

    Biden praised President Juan Manuel Santos for helping lead Latin America toward a “middle class, democratic and secure” future.

    Biden did note Washington’s continued insistence that human rights violators be tried in Colombia’s civilian courts. U.S. officials have expressed concern over a new law that could shift cases to the military justice system.

    Later, the vice president flew to Trinidad and Tobago for the second stop on his three-nation trip.

    Biden had a meeting for Tuesday to discuss regional security, energy and economic integration with Caribbean officials and leaders, including Haitian President Michel Martelly.

    He then traveled to Brazil to conclude the six-day trip.
