U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is in Colombia for meetings with officials that are expected to include discussion of trade, drug trafficking and security.

Kerry arrived in Bogota late Sunday on his first trip to South America since becoming secretary of state earlier this year.

The visit comes as the Colombian government continues peace talks with FARC rebels in a bid to end five decades of conflict, in what remains the longest-running insurgency in Latin America.
