President Luis Guillermo Solís said on Monday that he is in favour of allowing U.S. warships to enter Costa Rica waters, in support of the fight against drug trafficking.

Solís said that if the U.S. military wants, he would be willing to renegotiate the joint patrol agreement adopted in 1999, for the fight in the drug war.

The Legislative Assembly is currently discussing the latest application by the United States for permission to moor its ships.

The current agreement allows the approval for the entry of U.S. Coast Guard ships in a role of support of patrols by the Costa Rican Coast Guard, but does not authorize the entry of U.S. military ships. For the entry of foreign military ships and troops, legislators have to comply with Article 121 of the Constitution.

Solís said this is “cumbersome” and is not an efficient way against the war on drugs.

Despite the position of the Administration, the position of the Partido Acción Ciudadana (PAC) legislators, headed by Emilia Molina, is that they oppose the entry of warships, but have no problems with Coast Guard vessels.

Legislator and founder of the PAC party, Ottón Solís (no relation to President Solís), said on Monday that he will oppose the entry of any warships, even if it means not allowing the entry of confiscated drugs on U.S. warships.

Criticizing the PAC legislators and the President is opposition leader for the Movimiento Libertario, Otto Guevara, stressing the contradiction between the Legislature and Casa Presidencial.

For the time being, PLN party legislators (with the largest bloc, though not holding a majority), have kept quiet on the issue.
