Mexican President wants to ease tension between Ecuador and Columbia
In turn, Columbian president Uribe has alleged that Chavez has been funding the FARC and should be tried in the International Criminal Court for ‘sponsoring and financing’ genocide.
Mexico’s involvement in the affair continues, at it transpires that at least one of the FARC guerrillas captured and injured during Saturday night’s attack was a Mexican. LucÃa Andrea Morett Ãlvarez is recovering in a hospital in Ecuador, and reports this morning suggest that there could be more Mexicans – La Jornada claims that another Mexican died in the attack – a university researcher called Juan GonzÃ¡lez del Castillo.
Calderon ‘expressed his government’s will to support any action, at the request of both parties, to encourage dialog between their nations to restore the bilateral relationship to normality as soon as possible.’
