Principal Deputy National Security Advisor Jon Finer hosted Colombian Acting Foreign Minister Luis Murillo and his delegation at the White House on April 11, 2024 for the United States-Colombia High-Level Strategic Dialogue. Mr. Finer was joined by Assistant Secretary Brian Nichols of the Department of State, Assistant Secretary Blas Nunez-Neto of the Department of Homeland Security, and National Security Council Senior Director for Western Hemisphere Affairs Daniel Erikson.  The delegations discussed ways to strengthen their collaboration on migration, peace and security, and reviewed recent regional developments, including in Venezuela.  During the meeting, Mr. Finer thanked Colombia for its leadership on migration issues, including its plans to provide new lawful pathways to reduce irregular migration in the region.  Mr. Finer also welcomed Colombia’s extension of the three Safe Mobility Offices (SMOs) in Colombia, an initiative that the Biden-Harris Administration launched in June 2023 to facilitate safe, orderly, and lawful migration to the United States and other countries.  The United States-Colombia High-Level Strategic Dialogue helped further our shared bilateral goals across a diverse set of topics of mutual interest in advance of the United States-Colombia High-Level Dialogue in Bogota planned for May.
