Araújo demands an Ecuadorean explanation of the statements made by Astrid Betancourt Wednesday. Ingrid’s sister told the press that Quito is enjoying “slight contact” with the guerrillas “to be deepened in the coming days”.The Colombian government considers contact with the FARC “a violation of international norms that oblige all States to combat terrorism”, the note reads.Bogotá also demands Correa to rectify his comments about how the Colombian government had frustrated the liberation of Ingrid Betancourt by killing FARC commander Raúl Reyes: “President Correa has always said he wouldn’t make contact with the FARC without permission from the Colombian government. It can therefore not be possible there were advancing efforts to liberate her,” the Minister said.
