Bogota: Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said he will meet his US counterpart Donald Trump on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York this month.

In a Twitter post on Friday, Santos said the two have planned to meet on September 19 “to continue to advance bilateral ties”, Xinhua news agency reported. The UNGA convenes on September 12.

He offered more details during a public event in northeast La Guajira department, telling reporters he had called the White House to offer Colombia’s aid to the flood-ravaged victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas in south US.

“We are going to have a meeting during the week of the United Nations General Assembly. We are going to continue the talks we have been having about bilateral ties. There are many issues we have to work on with the United States,” said Santos.

The two leaders are expected to discuss drug trafficking and the political crisis in Venezuela.

Santos and Trump met for the first time in May in Washington DC.
