A senior U.S. official said Tuesday that Washington looks to re-launch diplomatic ties with Bolivia as President Evo Morales begins his second term of office.

The United States is committed to build better communication channels and to identify the areas where the two countries can work together, Washington's chief business officer in Bolivia, John Creamer, told the press.

U.S.-Bolivia ties were suspended in September 2008 when Morales expelled U.S. ambassador to Bolivia Philip Goldberg. Washington retaliated by expelling Bolivia's ambassador.

Relations began to improve in 2009, but with slow progress.
