The Colombian Government, represented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, decided to find out facts filed in the state of Amazonia, in which four officers of the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) were killed.
"Colombia rejects terrorism and violence caused by organized armed groups, such as the National Liberation Army (ELN), which has won Colombia and its people for years and will continue to face the legitimacy of our territory," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The Colombian Government expresses its condolences to the relatives of those involved. In addition, he showed his willingness to cooperate with the capture of representatives of ELN. "Colombia will be careful to promote all necessary cooperation through channels of judicial cooperation to ensure that those who are responsible for this unfortunate event are punished," he said.
On Sunday, Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez confirmed the death of three GBN troops in a clash with ELN members, which captured the leader of this partisan group. This week's fight for the death of the fourth defender was confirmed on the road connecting Higuerote with Río Chico.
