Colombia, Ecuador ties still not tight

BOGOTA, March 22 (UPI) -- Colombia has good relations with other Latin American countries except for Ecuador, said Colombian Foreign Minister Fernando Araujo.

Araujo noted relations between Colombian and Ecuador remain strained since Colombian forces entered Ecuadorian territory unannounced early this month to kill a leading leftist rebel hiding in a secret camp about one mile inside the Ecuadorian border, El Tiempo reported Saturday.

Though the verbal rancor between Ecuador and Colombia has subsided, formal relations have yet to be restored. Ecuador, along with Venezuela, cut off diplomatic relations with Colombia soon after the March 1.

Both Ecuador and Venezuela marched troops to their respective borders with Venezuela, only to recall them about a week later.
