Iran was the top security issue on the agenda of Colombia’s President Iván Duque Márquez in his meetings with President Isaac Herzog and Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Monday. Colombia was recently admitted to the International Atomic Energy Agency Board of Governors, and Herzog expressed hope that the Latin American country will “advance a meaningful diplomatic battle against the Iranian nuclear program.”

“Like Israel, I know that Colombia is concerned about Iran and Hezbollah’s terror cells being established on your border with Venezuela. From many years of experience, it is clear that these forces must be stopped swiftly—if not a minute sooner,” Herzog added. Bennett and Duque discussed their “shared security challenges, with an emphasis on Iran,” the Prime Minister’s Office stated. The prime minister also thanked Duque for Colombia designating Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as terrorist entities.
