SANTIAGO.- Despite incidents during the last few days that have taken the lives of four people in Bolivia, President Michelle Bachelet's upcoming trip, which is planned for December 11th, is still set to go ahead.

This was the report received this morning by Chancellor Alejandro Foxley as he attended the first China-Latin America business summit.

And so, the assembly in La Paz between the leaders of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva; Bolivia, Evo Morales, and Chile, Michelle Bachelet will take place on the date that was agreed upon days ago, in order to launch a bi-oceanic route to connect the three countries.

The Chancellor also stated that he is not up-to-date on whether President Bachelet has spoken with her Bolivian counterpart about the acts of violence that occurred during the weekend in Sucre.

The state secretary said that it relates to "internal matters" and "we really wouldn't have any reason to be giving opinions about political proceedings that do, or do not occur in a country, neighboring or otherwise".
