Chile and France React to Colombia’s Ecuadorian Incursion

Absent from U.S. coverage of the crisis in South America have been reactions from other countries. For that, we turn to El Pais which, in addition to predictable sound bites from Fidel Castro and Daniel Ortega, has responses from the French and Chilean governments critical of Uribe and U.S. policies

La presidenta de Chile, Michelle Bachelet:

“No podemos estar de acuerdo en que no se respeten las fronteras y lamentamos que Ecuador se haya sentido agredido”

La senadora colombiana Piedad Córdoba:

“El ministro de Defensa de Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, es defensor de los intereses de Estados Unidos en Colombia y, por tanto, el verdadero enemigo de la paz en la nación”

El ministro francés de Exteriores, Bernard Kouchner:

“No es una buena noticia que el hombre con el que hablábamos y teníamos contactos, haya sido matado”
