Ecuador sends more troops to border with Colombia

Ecuador sends more troops to border with Colombia


Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa said the situation in the border with Colombia was difficult, so he sent 3,000 more troops to stop illegal armed groups from crossing over to his country. These new troops will be joining the 7,000 soldiers and more than 3, 000 policemen already in the area.

This decision is a part of Correa’s demands in order to resume relations with Colombia, which have been unstable after a Colombian military attack on a FARC camp in Ecuador in March 2008.
