Giuliani campaigns for Latin American trade

November 27, 2007 | 12:06 pm

Republican presidential candidate Rudolph W. Giuliani thinks trade with South and Latin America could improve foreign relations. At a campaign stop in New Hampshire, he urged Congress to pass trade deals with Peru, Colombia and Panama. "The more America trades with a country, the less chance there is for hostilities, the less chance there is for war, the less chance there is for hostility that can't get resolved in a rational, businesslike way," Giuliani said. He said trade should be considered part of U.S. foreign policy and added that, for other countries, it is "how they get to know the genius of our economic system."
