U.S. to end trade agreement with Bolivia

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the United States is suspending its trade agreement with Bolivia, El Universal reported Friday.

Following a meeting Thursday with Mexican officials about Mexico's fight against drug-related violence, Rice said the United States was suspending the agreement because Bolivian President Evo Morales had not improved his country's efforts to combat drug cultivation.
