PANAMÁ. Panama has begun the fight against drug trafficking, reaching an agreement with its southern neighbor Colombia to help end the problem.

The country has had reason to believe that FARC Commander Gilberto Torres Muñeton is operating near the country's border with Colombia.

The government has said that weapons dealings are on the rise with the guerilla group, and that they have confiscated 6 tons of Cocaine in 2009 alone, a rise since last year.

Authorities of the two countries held a summit in Bogota, where they reached an agreement to begin the fight against not only the drug trafficking, but against terrorism and money laundering as well.

It is Panama's hope that together with Columbia, they can capture the FARC members operating within the borders of their country.
