But there are some issues that need to be reconsidered. We’ll be enhancing the system of production that is accessible and the connection can not only be political but also commercial.
UU is the main issue facing U.S. today. It makes us realize that things are changing and that the U.S. is a country which can produce more food consumption however, it is able to export high-quality items to foreign markets.
Gutierrez used the opportunity to offer a bid to Petro: “The blockades that you Petro demanded to close roads had an impact on the cost of food. The people are wondering why the chicken and egg cost so much, since you blocked the road,” he said.

Relations with Venezuela
The discussion concluded by addressing Venezuela. Gutierrez pointed this out: “Maduro has had a relationship with Colombia through the FARC. Eln. dissidents. Piedad. Petro. I think Maduro cannot be recognized as an official government because it is an absolute dictatorship. It is however possible to observe a border reality.
He also stated that vehicle travel must be allowed due to the fact that trade has been taking place because criminal groups are keeping an illegal economy. Maduro isn’t recognized as a government, but the business decisions have to be made in the border area.”
