George W. Bush will give Alvaro Uribe the highest US civilian award

George W. Bush will give Alvaro Uribe the highest US civilian award George W. Bush will give Alvaro Uribe the highest US civilian award
Colombian President Alvaro Uribe will next week receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from outgoing US President George W. Bush. Two other foreign leaders will also be given this honor, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former Prime Minister of Australia, John Howard.

The three leaders will receive the award on 13th January, exactly a week before Bush leaves the White House and hands the keys of the Oval Office to Barack Obama.

Uribe, as well as Blair and Howard, is a close ally of President Bush and has worked with him to combat rebel groups in Colombia and activities aimed at controlling drug trafficking. They have also tried unsuccessfully to promote a free trade agreement between both countries.

"The president is honoring these leaders for their work to improve the lives of their citizens and for their efforts to promote democracy, human rights and peace abroad. All three leaders have been staunch allies of the United States, particularly in combating terrorism”, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said on Monday.
