WASHINGTON, DC- Today Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement on Colombia’s Independence Day. Diaz-Balart comments:

“I would like to join the people of Colombia and Colombians in South Florida as they celebrate their 202 years of Independence from Spain. As we commemorate this special day for Colombia, it is significant to recognize the continuation of strengthened relations with the country. The recent enforcement of the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) helps to expand the economies of both countries. Colombia is a friend and staunch ally to the United States, and the FTA will only make the relationship stronger.”
