Colombia's Santos criticizes UN court ruling on border

BOGOTA, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Colombian President Juan Manuel

Santos on Monday criticized a binding ruling by a U.N. court

that drew a demarcation line in favor of Nicaragua in the

western Caribbean.

"Colombia ... emphatically rejects that aspect of the

judgment the Court has issued," Santos said in a statement.

"Therefore, we do not rule out any action or mechanism

granted to us by international law to defend our rights."
