“Colombia can not stand this situation alone, we have been making a great effort, we will continue to make greater efforts, but the magnitude of the crisis is such that we do not have the capacity to meet it ,” Trujillo told Caracol Radio.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs assured that Colombia , which has received aid from the United States, will insist on promoting “concrete measures and actions” at the national, regional, multilateral and international levels to face the migratory wave.

Among them, he reiterated the need to create a multilateral emergency fund, and to appoint a senior official of the United Nations to coordinate actions to face the emergency.

“This is an issue that mainly affects us as a country, but it is a crisis that affects the entire region, since that migration crisis from Venezuela has acquired a great magnitude,” said the foreign minister.
