South American spy chiefs discuss Colombia's war

BRASILIA, Brazil (Reuters) -- Intelligence chiefs from six South American countries broke from a secretive huddle in Brazil's capital after swapping notes on possible fallout from Colombia's offensive on drug traffickers and Marxist rebels.

The closed-door talks on Thursday at the headquarters of Brazil's National Intelligence Agency ended with a short statement saying Colombia and its five neighboring nations had resolved to "perfect the exchange of intelligence."

Brazil's Gen. Alberto Cardoso, the president's chief security adviser and the meeting's host, declined to comment further.

The meeting comes as Colombia's five neighbors -- Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela and Panama, all represented in Brasilia -- move to reinforce their common borders with the war-torn nation.

They worry that "Plan Colombia," the country's U.S.-backed, $7.5 billion assault on the drug trade in rebel strongholds, could push the conflict over its border into their territories.
