GUATEMALA CITY – Guatemala President Otto Pérez Molina will hold a five-hour meeting Thursday in Costa Rica to discuss common issues, especially the fight against drug trafficking.

During his brief stay in Costa Rica, Pérez Molina will meet with Costa Rica’s President Laura Chinchilla to discuss bilateral relations, regional issues and “to show solidarity with the Costa Rican people following the earthquake on Wednesday,” the Guatemalan president told reporters.

“The trip to Costa Rica is something that has been postponed by scheduling conflicts, but both President Chinchilla and I are committed to the visit,”  Pérez Moina said.
