“The foreign minister is fine and the results of the analyses were negative, but there has had to be a reprogramming of his agenda,” Lina Maria Ibañez, the second secretary at the Colombian Embassy in Beijing, told Efe.

Jaime Bermudez was quarantined on Monday, the first day of his Asia tour, when it became known that Colombian President Alvaro Uribe – with whom he had traveled on the return flight from the UNASUR summit in Bariloche, Argentina – had contracted swine flu, and the foreign minister spend all day waiting for test results that were not available until the evening.

The meetings and other events on Bermudez’s schedule originally slated for Monday and Tuesday in China were cancelled or postponed, but his trip to South Korea scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday was not affected by the reshuffling.

After South Korea, the foreign minister is to travel to Japan for a very short visit, but he will return to Beijing on Friday to participate in the most important events that had to be suspended over the past couple of days.

“He will meet with the minister of Foreign Affairs, Yang Jiechi, and Vice President Xi Jinping, while other suspended events ... will be held on Saturday,” said Ibañez.
