Lula Ignoring Venezuela Rebel Threats, Uribe Says

Colombian President Alvaro Uribe said that Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is ignoring the security threat that the presence of Marxist rebels in Venezuelan territory represents for his country.

Uribe’s accusation came as foreign ministers were set to gather at an emergency meeting of the Union of South American Nations in Quito, Ecuador today to resolve a dispute between Venezuela and the U.S.-allied Colombia.
