Colombian President In Texas

Colombian arrives for talks at Bush ranch.

President Bush has welcomed one of his closest Latin American allies to his ranch in Texas on Thursday. Colombian President Alvaro Uribe got a hearty handshake and pats on the back as he arrived for a day of talks. Drug trafficking, terrorism and trade top the agenda for the meeting -- on the second full day of the president's August sojourn in Crawford, Texas.

With US backing, Uribe's been waging a fierce fight against drug cartels and Marxist rebels. He's also hoping to convince US investors that Colombia's a good place to do business. On the way to the ranch, he stopped in Houston for a meeting with business chiefs.
