"I guarantee that there is not a single FARC camp here. But we may find civilian people crossing the border entering Brazilian territory to buy consummer goods", he stated.

Tarso Genro said that, in case of finding Farc bases inside the country, the government will act according to the law to inhibit the action of the Colombian guerrilla fighters. "A year ago, more or less, there was a [FARC] presence which was quickly repelled and it did not repeated anymore. The Federal Police and the Armed Forces control the region for sure according to their competence. There is not that kind of problem in [our] country".

Genro commented to Brazilian radio stations the declaration of the Equatorian President, Rafael Correa. In response to a question about if he knew about FARC bases inside Ecuador, Correa said, that probably there are FARC bases inside Brazil.

Correa's declaration was made yesterday (5), after his encounter with Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva, when he thanked the Brazilian support. Brazil condemned the invasion of the Ecuadorian territory by the Colombian Army.
