Mulino, who this Wednesday, March 28, met with the Minister of Defense of Colombia, Juan Carlos Pinzón, said no one was arrested during the action. The Minister said intelligence reports indicate the camps belonged to the 57th Front of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). "In the region of the Tuquesa river, we identified two camps of 57th FARC Front and we proceeded with the destruction of these clandestine structures. This joint action is part of the effort with Colombia that seeks there to be no guerrilla presence in our territory. Panama is making the effort in order to have our territory free of this narco-guerrilla group," said Mulino.
Pinzón and Mulino analyzed the situation of border security and coordination of the authorities of both countries to combat various crimes. The ministers agreed to strengthen the fight against drug trafficking and illegal mining, and to implement training programs for the "Armed Forces of Panama" in Colombia. "We have agreed to provide all cooperation to the government of Panama, to train officers of the various public safety services in each of the specialties and by each of the military and police forces in Colombia," said Pinzón.
