La Paz, August 2 (RHC)-- Colombian Vice President-elect Francia Márquez met with former Bolivian President Evo Morales to make clear the common positions between leaders and peoples.  

"With joy we met with Evo, master of life.  With him we learned the dignity of the peoples, to keep standing despite adversities," Marquez posted on her Twitter account to close her visit to Bolivia.

"Today the struggle of the Bolivian and Colombian people come together to call for a united and sovereign Latin America," she later expressed in accordance with one of the concepts he defended throughout the tour of South America: unity.

The former Bolivian president also highlighted, on his Twitter account: a "wonderful two-hour meeting with our sister Francia Márquez, vice-president-elect of Colombia.  We shared experiences of the long struggle for the rights of the poorest and excluded from neoliberal policies."

Evo Morales insisted that both ideals are moving towards the unity and brotherhood of the Patria Grande.

The meeting took place within the framework of Márquez's tour of the region, which included a visit to Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Bolivia, before officially taking office next Sunday, August 7, as the first Afro-descendant woman of her country to be vice-president.

Francia Márquez returns to Colombia after her South American tour, where she participated in high-level meetings with presidents, vice-presidents, ministers and other political and social personalities of the continent.
