With my unforgettable visit to Germany and our memorable discussions still fresh in my memory, I have asked Dr. Carlos Villamil Chaux, former Colombian consul in Berlin to inform you about the current political situation in Colombia as well as about some of the possible alternatives within the scope of our constitution and democracy for finding a solution to the problems.
