MEXICO CITY — — Mexico and Colombia have decided to cancel their travel restrictions in Mexico and Argentina this year, the International Civil Aviation Organization said Monday.
The two countries’ cooperation will be extended until at least April, the ICAO said in a statement.
This is in line with the agreement signed last year by President Enrique Pena Nieto and Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, who both have pledged to strengthen aviation safety cooperation.
They also announced plans to continue cooperation in the fight against terrorism, the statement said.
In March, Colombia and Mexico announced an agreement to cooperate on the coordination of security forces in the Central American country of El Salvador.
Since then, the two countries have been working to coordinate security forces and improve border security.
As part of this agreement, Mexico agreed to extend the validity of its visa-free travel agreement with Colombia, which expires in 2018, to April 2019.
