Ecuador Wants Colombia Payback

Quito, Apr 11 (Prensa Latina) Ecuador is demanding clear actions from Colombia and compensations for the effects of glyphosate and the conflict on the border, Foreign Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa confirmed.

This position was announced this week by President Rafael Correa, and ratified Tuesday by Espinosa, who considered that the Quito-Colombia dialogue has come to an end.

Espinosa spoke at a bi-national scientific-technical meeting to analyze damage to the population by irrigation with glyphosate, and announced that they will resort to world authorities to denounce the neighboring government.

Like Correa, the minister said "sending protest letters to Bogota is not worth anything," and announced the beginning of a multilateral strategy, with a view to denounce "the aggressions and abuse by the Colombian authorities," she said.
