February 19th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) Once again, Costa Rica is being forced to counter rumors of U.S. military presence in the country after the country appeared on a list of US Army bases on the Spanish-language version of the US Army’s official recruitment web site, GoArmy.com.
Costa Rica’s Foreign Ministry told local media yesterday that Costa Rica’s presence on the list was a technical error.
Foreign Minister, Enrique Castillo said the situation has been brought to the attention of US authorities, and the US Embassy in San José has sent a statement to the army to correct the situation.
Earlier this month, Costa Rica presented a formal protest to the Venezuela-based international television network, TeleSUR, after the television network claimed there were United States military forces and a naval base in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province.
