meeting of this organization to be held in Argentina on August 28,
What, contrary to what they maintain the governments of
Colombia and the United States this deployment goes much more
there than is necessary to replace the capacity of the Base
of Manta and it is disproportionate to the needs of the
fight against the guerrillas and drug trafficking, which are the
motives wielded by the government of President Alvaro
Uribe to reach the mentioned agreement. Such a situation
encourages fears that the real purpose of this
agreement is to sustain a geopolitical control strategy
of the hemisphere by the allied superpower;

South America, escalate the civil conflict that afflicts the
sister Republic, undermine the efforts being made by the
continent to set up a

democratic based on solidarity and the primacy of the
peaceful resolution of the causes of violence;

of the peoples of the Continent who see it as a threat

Colombian state officials insist on holding the

extra-territorially in your fight against terrorism and
other threats to your security;

development and use of weapons of mass destruction and the
imposition of bases or facilities for purposes

of Colombia's relations with its neighbors and especially
for Ecuador, with who diplomatic relations
remain broken; and,

autonomy of our peoples.
4. To insist that a full restoration of relations between Colombia and Ecuador, as well as the
mutual trust between our states, can
beif the Colombian Government reviews its unilateral
decision. In particular, it
agrees to insist on the need for Colombia
to respond favorably to the conditions posed by
the Government of Ecuador, in order to overcome the
serious aggression suffered by Ecuador on 1 In March of the
year 2008, and above all to emphasize the absolute
need for Colombia to expressly renounce to the
repudiable and illegal doctrine of the "Preventive Attack
Extratritorial", as well as to any policy that In
