Manta Air Base could be relocated in Colombia
Located in Ecuador for the past 10 years, United States military Manta Air Base is looking for a new home. Heather Hodges, U.S. ambassador in Ecuador declared all personnel and equipment will be retired from the country before November, but she hasn’t still confirmed a new location for the base. Colombia is among the countries that U.S has been considering as an option due to its constant fight against drug trafficking. Nevertheless, Juan Manuel Santos, Minister of Defence, discards the possibility.
