After Chavez cut all Venezuela’s relations with Colombia, there are still no answers to the ultimate question.  At the heart of the dispute is the claim that Venezuela has given refugee to an estimated 1500 guerrillas in the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC) and the National Liberation Army, (ELN) as well as some of their leaders. Colombia has always been open to mediation on the dispute, even calling upon Spain and Cuba to help with the matter. At this weeks OAS Council meeting, Colombia presented evidence of the Venezuelan governments harboring of the 1500 strong force that continually attacks Colombia from across the border. Colombia presented photos and videos among other evidence.
