Remarks at a Luncheon Hosted By President Alvaro Uribe Velez of Colombia in Bogota, Colombia,
March 11, 2007

Mr. President, thank you very much. I appreciate your hospitality. I am amazed by the beauty of your country. I’ve never been here to the beautiful capital city of your country, but Laura and I were struck by two things: the beauty of the landscape and the warmness of the people.

We bring greetings from the United States to the people of your country. We have been friends, and we shall remain friends. We value your democracy. I appreciate your strong leadership. We come during a period where your country has come through very difficult times, and now there’s a brighter dayahead. And my message to the people of your country is, we want to help every individual realize their God-given potential.

I’d like to propose a toast to the people of this country, to the leadership of this country. May God bless you.

Note: The President spoke at 3 p.m. at Casa de Narino. The transcript released by the Office of the Press Secretary also included the remarks of President Uribe. The Office of the Press Secretary also released a Spanish language transcript of these remarks. A tape was not available for verification of the content of these remarks.
