U.S. and Colombia to Resume Drug Flights

May 02, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

The United States and Colombia have signed an agreement to resume drug surveillance flights, suspended for two years after a missionary group's plane was mistakenly shot down over Peru.

The agreement was signed in Colombia and the flights will resume "very, very, very soon," Colombian President Alvaro Uribe told reporters on the second day of a visit to Washington.

An official with the State Department said the flights probably wouldn't begin until summer.
