Colombia Revives Relations With U.S. Foe Venezuela

BOGOTÁ, Colombia—Venezuela and Colombia moved to re-establish relations that had been severed in 2019 when the U.S. and its closest allies moved to isolate Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro’s regime.

The resumption of relations between the South American neighbors marks a flip for Colombia, the U.S.’s longtime high associate in Latin America. Below newly elected President Gustavo Petro, Colombia has pledged to steer away from the Washington-led stress marketing campaign towards Mr. Maduro’s authoritarian authorities. The resumption of diplomacy implies that all giant nations within the Americas, save for the U.S., Canada and Brazil, have resumed diplomatic relations with Venezuela.
