‘Colombia in the wrong,’ says Calderon.

President Felipe Calderon yesterday came out on the side of Ecuador in the ongoing dispute with Colombia, triggered at the weekend when Colombia ambushed and killed a Farc guerrilla leader and more than 17 other rebels on the Ecuadorian side of the border.

The Mexican President backed the Organisation of American States resolution that Colombia violated the territorial sovereignty of Ecuador in Saturday’s cross-border attack, according to today’s The News (no website available).

Speaking from Panama, Calderon also called for the two countires to stablise relations, and reiterated support for Colombia’s war on terrorism, drug trafficking and organised crime – the latter two of which are huge challenges currently being faced by Calderon in his own back yard.

According to today’s Los Angeles Times, Lucía Andrea Morett Álvarez, the Mexican girl injured in Saturday night’s attack, is not a guerrilla but a university student who was undertaking research for her thesis. But El Universal today maintains that Morrett Álvarez was one of the principal contacts between the Farc and support networks here in Mexico.

  1. Every day we hava more evidence of Lucía Andrea Morett implication with FARC gorrilla group. If she is really is innocent as she claims, why dosen’t she return to México and face the demand presented by Consejo de Seguridad Pública y Justicia Penal and other investigation on her social activisim.

  2. It´s really easy to say I am innocent and ask for poltical asylum to extreme socialist goverments. Unfortunately her arguments are not very credible, that´s is the resons that a lot of public opinion still think she had links with the FARC.
