BOGOTA (Reuters) - Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said on Thursday Bogota was closing the border with neighboring Ecuador where unrest erupted over austerity measures.
“I spoke with (Peru’s president) and the two countries decided to close the borders with Ecuador as a political sign of solidarity with President Correa and with Ecuador’s democracy,” Santos told reporters before getting on a flight for a regional meeting in Argentina on Ecuador’s unrest.
