BOGOTA, July 29 (Xinhua) -- Colombia said Thursday it is discontented with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's latest comments that the Colombia-Venezuela tension was caused by "personal issues."
The Colombian government said in a statement the Brazilian leader does not know "about the threat that the presence of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) represents to Colombia and the continent."
It said Colombia has been trying to forge "best ties" with Lula, however he "does not know about Colombia's efforts to seek solutions though dialogue."
The statement also reaffirmed Colombia's opposition to a different solution to the issue of armed rebel groups.
Lula said Wednesday that the simmering Colombia-Venezuela feud was not a "conflict" beyond the "verbal" level and the best way to solve it is to wait till Aug. 7, when a new government takes charge in Bogota.
Venezuela broke off diplomatic ties with Colombia on July 22, after Bogota accused Caracas of hosting Colombian guerilla chiefs on its soil.
