US Frets over Ecuador Base

Washington, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) Gen. Bantz Craddock, chief of the South Command, admitted that the permanence of the US military base in Ecuador is on tenterhooks, the Miami Herald daily reported Tuesday.

Craddock noted the US military command is closely following the elections in the South American state as the future of its units in that territory depends on the next president.

The October 15 balloting in Ecuador did not produce a winner so electoral authorities said there will be a runoff.

One of the candidates, Rafael Correa, announced that if he wins the presidency he will not renew the contract with Washington s base in Manta, near the Pacific Coast.

Although the White House insists that its military contingent is accomplishing anti-drug trafficking operations, several social organizations knock those actions as meddling.
